It was a great night on Twitter night! I was tweeting with the rest of you! The power of social media is real & heartening. Twitter seems to dominated by Conservatives while Facebook is dominated by progressives, liberals, leftists, statists. I think the Rand and other senators were energized by our efforts on Twitter and was mentioned on the senate floor!!! Time will tell but I think it will have proven to be a historic move by Rand Paul. If you want to follow on twitter: @DapperDSM   ~Fighting against the meltdown! ~Dan Messina

I really enjoyed following/participating in the filibuster on twitter.  And, while, several tweets were read on the floor of the senate, unfortunately, the best ones couldn't BE read on the floor of the senate - LOL.

Also, several senators were called out by name on twitter, asking why they weren't there, afterwhich, many of those called out, did show up.

During the course of the evening, most of the items trending on twitter were related to the filibuster, such as:   standwithrand, filibuster, filiblizzard (play on the fact that DC was shut down for a blizzard that never happened), etc.
