Best Twitter Feed By a Politician 

Missouri Rep. John Burnett

Don't laugh: Twitter has become a useful tool for government transparency. But no one wants to follow a politician's tweets if they're dull as dirt. Lucky for us, there's state Rep. John Burnett, the Kansas City Democrat whose wry updates from Jefferson City are equal parts amusing and informative. Case in point, this gem from May 11: "When Rep Franz is recognized he is 'Gentleman from Howell.' Whenever Speaker says it Repubs make coyote howling sound. Such fun dudes." From September 14, about ousted Missouri Democrat Donald Calloway: "Rep Calloway made great going away speech but said he is from 'the crazy district'. Unh unh. I think I have that title sewed up."
