Eye On Boise

One of ‘most powerful tweets’ came from Idaho

The Idaho Statesman’s Dan Popkey reports this morning that Congressman Walt Minnick’s concession on Twitter made Twitter’s list of the “10 Most Powerful Tweets of 2010,” ranking No. 8. The tweet, sent by campaign manager John Foster around 2 a.m. as Election Night stretched into morning, said, “Congratulations to Raul Labrador on a hard-earned win, and best of luck as Idaho’s next Congressman.” 

Other tweets making the list included one from NBC reporter Ann Curry, seeking clearance for a Doctors Without Borders plane to land in Haiti; one from the president of Ecuador declaring a state of emergency; and one from the British royal family announcing the engagement of Prince William to Kate Middleton. Popkey reported, “Asked to comment Tuesday, Foster said in an e-mail, ‘I’m stunned. It’s a huge honor.’”
