100% Of U.S. Senate Members Now Use Twitter [MAP]

Later today Barack Obama will be publicly sworn in as President of the United States Of America, and as the buzz builds across the Twitter the timing couldn’t have been any better.

As of Friday, all 100 members of the Senate, and 90 percent of the 398 members of the House Of Representatives have active Twitter accounts.

Back in 2011, just 44 percent of the Senate and 35 percent of the House were active on Twitter. There are 29 States with their entire delegation tweeting, and every State across America boasts a delegation tweeting rate of at least 70 percent. Not bad for a platform that was just getting started when President Obama was first elected.

Twitter has released this map detailing the impact the micro-blogging social network has made to U.S. politics.
