McCain to Get Interviewed on Twitter

Experiment follows on last summer's disappointing debate between campaign aides

In a recent presentation to a conference, Twitter co-founder Evan William noted how President Obama's groundbreaking use of Twitter had fallen off in recent months. And how John McCain's had picked up.

We'll see if McCain truly gets Twitter in an interview to be conducted over the short-form service. He'll answer questions from ABC's George Stephanopoulos for the Sunday morning show, This Week.

Most of McCain's recent Tweets have been about his daily schedule, which amounts to a yawner for most of us. I don't have high hopes for tomorrow, either, recalling my disappointment in another political experiment on Twitter. That debate last summer between Obama and McCain aides hardly left me panting for more.
