On-message with social media? Good luck with that

Cincinnati (CNN) - Mitt Romney had a mutiny on his hands. Not with his staff but with his embeds.

The hardworking, 20- and 30-something off-camera network news reporters who chronicle Romney's every public utterance had decided on a plan: They would band together and confront the candidate working the rope line, mini-cams in hand, with the hopes of forcing Romney to comment on the Rush Limbaugh controversy.

Rep. Ron Paul's American Idol vote

(CNN) – Texas Rep. Ron Paul captured the vote of an American Idol early Thursday when winner Kelly Clarkson tweeted her support for her fellow Texan's candidacy for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.

"I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance," she said in a tweet too long to fit within the social media site's 140 character limit. "If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he's got my vote."

Gingrich: Twitter followers aren't fake

(CNN) - Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, whose Twitter follower count far exceeds those of any other Republican candidate, denied claims Wednesday that the campaign had inflated its numbers by buying followers through a purchasing service.

"Any accusation of the kind is a lie, a smear and unsubstantiated," R.C. Hammond, spokesperson for Gingrich, said in a statement.

President's Twitter campaign back-tweets

Washington (CNN) – It's hard to explain it in 140 characters or less. President Obama's re-election Twitter account lost thousands of followers Friday after his 2012 campaign tried to use the social media site to turn up the heat on Republicans over the debt ceiling.

The account, @BarackObama, sent out scores of tweets Friday listing the Twitter handles for dozens of GOP members of Congress.
