ABC News Host To Conduct First Twitterview

Last week, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos conducted a back-and-forth Twitter exchange with Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, who is one of the most prolific Twitterers in Congress.

We’re going to attempt to conduct a full interview exclusively on Twitter — complete with the 140-character limit!
All a part of exploring new ways to connect with our “This Week” viewers online. So, if you have any suggested questions for me to ask Sen. McCain — in 140 characters or less — “twitter” me!

Last Friday, msnbc.com’s First Read wrote about how Sen. McCain has gone from being a “candidate who acknowledged during the 2008 presidential campaign not using e-mail or Blackberries to now being a Twitter touter.”

TVNewser conducted its first (and so far only) Twitterview in September with CNN’s Rick Sanchez.
