Jake Tapper’s Biggest Twitter Regret

Jake TapperCNN anchor (and prolific Tweeter) Jake Tapper talks to Zap2it about Twitter, calling it “irreplaceable as a source of information.” Tapper says he finds it most useful when people suggest interview questions to him: “I’m a collaborative person — it makes me better — and sometimes taking that collaboration to Twitter is helpful,” he says.

Tapper also reveals his biggest Twitter regret:

There was a politician who was scandalized whom I used to re-Tweet on occasion, until one tweep asked me to stop. I told him if he gave $100 to a kids charity, I would stop. Then we got others involved. Ultimately we raised $2,800, and I stopped RT-ing the politician in question. My regret is, I should have held out for more!
