What have they done with the real Chuck Grassley?

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) did something not very unusual today: he posted to his Twitter page.

What was unusual was its use of spelled out words and proper punctuation.

Grassley is somewhat of a Twitter guru, often sending in tweets via text message that use abbreviations and shorthand to fit in what he's trying to say beneath the 140-character limit.

But today, Grassley tweeted:
In first hour of hearing on financing Health Care Reform. This is third and last segment of steps leading to drafting a bill

As a matter of comparison, here are five of Grassley's most recent tweets:
