Study: One party is tweeting 'more effectively'

Twitter is now a "political powerhouse," and one party is doing a better job of using it in Congress, according to a new, extensive study.
Be sure to check it out to see how much our lawmakers are using Twitter to attack - and how often they're tweeting about actual legislation.
The folks at Mashable point out that the findings just may come as a surprise.
Today in the Newsroom, we're breaking it down for you.
Also, the folks at Edelman have crunched some fresh numbers to name the current leaders for "most influential" and "most popular" members of Congress on Twitter. Check out that list on Facebook.
