Rep. Ros-Lehtinen attracts kudos for her retweeting

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) may not have the most Twitter followers for House Republicans (Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) has that honor), but she’s making a difference in her own way.

Ros-Lehtinen is leading House Republicans in “clout and influence,” according to the Miami Herald. She earned this title for her consistent use of “retweeting” or reposting what someone else already said.

"Every day, I work hard in trying to reach more folks through new media," Ros-Lehtinen said. "All of us need to branch out to get a wider audience."

Ros-Lehtinen’s Twitter name is twitter.com/IRL.

"I'm excited that our GOP conference is working overtime to get all our members involved," Ros-Lehtinen said. "Thanks to all my followers and please tell your pals to join!"
