Bloomberg’s Al Hunt Joins Riff Raff of Twitter

Al Hunt, Executive Editor for Bloomberg News in Washington and former bureau chief and executive Washington editor for WSJ (he was at WSJ for 35 years) sent his first tweet today…to Bloomberg TV anchor Margaret Brennan.

“For a guy my age it was really an adjustment,” Hunt, 68, mused.

He went on to joke, “I don’t want you to tell my wife that the first person I ever Tweeted was Margaret Brennan.”

So far he has tweeted 10 messages. One of which was to NBC’s Luke Russert congratulating him on his Weiner coverage: About an hour ago, he wrote, “Luke, helps my image to be associated with the crown prince of congressional reporters ! your stuff re weiner been great. luv to mom.”

Watch here. Hunt’s handle: @AlHuntDC.
