State Senator Chris Widener’s Twitter account is something to behold!
His Twitter profile description appears to have been ripped straight from some Tea Party dating website (OKStupid?), with claims that he is a “Conservative” and an “Outdoorsman” and someone who is working to “Support tax payers” and “connect job seekers – employers.”
Dating jokes aside, it’s clear this account is not personal since his Tweets are almost always related to senate business, and his profile provides a link to his official Ohio Senate webpage.
It’s true that we’ve written about State Senator Chris Widener many times. And more than a few of those articles were not positive. But should an official (or even semi-official) social media account for a sitting state senator be blocking and hiding content from fellow Ohioans?
We’re going to go with …. nope!
On February 4th, Widener retweeted some sage, self-helpy advice: “Every day is a day you can be a better person than you were yesterday.”
We highly recommend Mr. Widener listen to his own Twitter tips.
