One of the GOP's most frequent Twitter users, Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), downplayed the rosy picture of the microblogging site's influence painted by Time magazine recently.

Hoekstra, an early adapter of the technology who tweets for himself, tweeted Monday:
Is Time magazine right? Twitter changing the world? Having an impact yes, fundamentally changing? I don't think so.
