Firewall the Youth Vote

During the election, President Obama’s people (and ostensibly the candidate himself) practically lived on Twitter. Those days are over:

When asked if he Twittered personally, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that he does not because he cannot access the microblogging site at work.

“For some reason Twitter is blocked on White House computers,” Gibbs told C-SPAN’s Washington Journal on Friday morning.

“I have to say I’m on camera enough that I think people have a decent sense of what I’m doing minus Twittering,” he added.

It’s the New Openness.
