Obama Mobilizing His Followers via Twitter

On the Web, Oba­ma’s Twit­ter site now has more than 60,000 fol­low­ers, who receive updates from Oba­ma’s town hall meet­ings and links to his Web site.

The arti­cle also men­tions that “Repub­li­can John McCain’s cam­paign, mean­while, has not high­light­ed text mes­sages,” Instead McCain is going old-school with viral YouTube videos, [sic] “McCain’s recent ‘Celeb’ ad, which com­pared Oba­ma to Brit­ney Spears and Paris Hilton, has received about 2 mil­lion hits on YouTube.”
