There actually was a GOP Presidential Debate on Twitter today. Michelle Bachman, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Thad McCotter, Gary Johnson and Newt Gingrich participated. And yes, the Two Penguins participated too, though they were largely ignored (unfair as that might be, seeing as how they were the first to declare their candidacy for President, but I digress).
Apparently this twitter debate is the first ever, at least among presidential candidates, so it’s somewhat of an historic day indeed for twitter and social media. Not sure how effective it was, what with all the extraneous noise from the twitterverse at large, but it was interesting to say the least.
