Yes, Marion Barry is now on Twitter.
The Ward 8 D.C. Council member, 75, confirmed today that is his official account, and Barry (D) says he’s composing the messages himself. For this we have to thank “consultants” — someone he refused to reveal who “is not on the government payroll.”
“The social media is hot right now,” he said. “I want to keep in touch with technology. I want to stay in touch with the young people.”
Barry declined to discuss what he plans to tweet about, except to say he intended to tweet a photo of his ill-fated silver Jaguar, which he said is in tip-top shape of late: “The silver bullet is on the move,” he said.
