Do you find it appropriate for members of Congress (on both sides of the political aisle) to be sending out 'tweets' during the President's State of the Union?
[h=1]These 41 Members of Congress Tweeted During the State of the Union. Here?s What They Had to Say.[/h]I remember this happening last year as well. The NY Times proclaimed members of Congress sent out just under 1500 tweets DURING the SOTU in 2014:
[h=1]Applaud, Tweet and Repeat at the State of the Union[/h]I could not find the numbers yet for the amount sent out last night but am I the only one that finds this behavior rude? Granted, I get annoyed being at dinner and having someone take out their phone to text, tweet, check email or whatever. LOL
I don't care who is speaking but outside of recording the event (and even that should be done discreetly) -- put the phone away! Take notes if you want and send out the barbs/cheers later.
*mini-rant* over. I guess it is better than those seen falling asleep in years past.
