Sarah Palin signs up for Twitter............

Sarah Palin signs up for Twitter

Perhaps this is a tipping point for Twitter - conservative icon Governor Sarah Palin is now tweeting. Under the moniker @AKGovSarahPalin (not very snappy but there are, by my reckoning, already 32 Sarah Palin twitter accounts) the 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate has plunged into the social networking maelstrom.

Well, plunged is a bit of an exaggeration. More like dipping a toe in really. In the 14 hours or so since she's signed up she (or whichever staffer is tweeting for her) has sent three tweets. But there's certainly an appetite out there for all things Palin - in that time she's already gained 2,012 followers.

While the first tweet reads ominously corporate (declaring this is Palin's "official Twitter feed" from which "I'll provide updates on issues concerning Alaskans") the second one, encouragingly, accuses the AP of having "gravely misquoted my staff".

So maybe we'll soon be treated to a stream of "you betcha" and "doggone it" (which Barack Obama nicked last night) tweets laced with wink signs and invective against John McCain aides.

Interestingly, among the 36 people she's following are GOP 2012 nomination rivals (and fellow governors) Bobby Jindal and Tim Pawlenty and - from the media - Drudge (her first follow), Fox duo Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly, NBC's David Gregory and ABC's George Stephanopoulos.

What, I hear you wonder, no Katie Couric?

NBC says Twitter loses more than 60% of their users after the first month and that they won't be able to sustain the program.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
