Corbett vs. Twitter users

Attorney General Tom Corbett, who sailed to the GOP gov nomination, wasted little time in making headlines past the lopsided win.

He slammed Gov. Ed Rendell, who of course responded and we had politics as usual in Pennsylvania.

But then he went after Twitter users who've been critical of him in a case that now has ACLU involvement and is getting national attention.

Corbett needs to know everything and you just wonder when and where he might stop. Going after tweets? What next?

Corbett and his staff should be introduced to 2010 and the fact that social networking is growing and it's here to stay. There is going to be criticism, nameless or anonymous.

It's ashame Corbett had to make this his first power play as the GOP nominee.
