Florida's top tweeter chirps from the House floor, thanks to new House rules

The Hill notes that "at least one lawmaker used the new rules in the House to tweet from the House's floor.

"Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) sent dispatches from the House floor, taking advantage of new rules — which, at that point, had not yet been approved — allowing members to use BlackBerrys and other electronic devices in the chamber.

"Ros-Lehtinen dispatched several tweets, one of which included a photo, proving that she was tweeting from the floor: Speaker Pelosi hands over the gavel to Speaker Boehner: hurrah!!! http://yfrog.com/h096367147j

"The Republican-led change in rules lifted a previous ban on the use of electronic devices on the floor."

Make it a bigger circus than it is. Why not just let the news teams circulate around the floor with cameras and conduct multiple performances.
