Rep. Issa helps fellow office cope with Twitter failure

Rep. Paul Gosar’s (R-Ariz.) office experienced some Twitter problems Wednesday afternoon, but “laughed through” it thanks to a fellow Republican congressman.

“Twitter is not working well today,” Gosar’s staff initially tweeted, explaining in a subsequent tweet that they were unable to “RT,” or re-tweet, other users. Gosar's tweets, attributed to staff members, used the popular Twitter hashtag "#fail."

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) responded to Gosar’s staff’s initial tweet with encouragement: “Stay strong!”

A tweet through Gosar’s account later in the day thanked Issa: “Thanks for all the funny messages about the twitter probs. I laughed through the problem. Since I can't RT him follow @DarrellIssa.”
