Two of Utah Legislature's top tweeters talk social media tactics Utah Senators Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross and Jim Dabakis, D-Salt Lake City, are, according to Weiler, the Utah Legislature’s two most animated tweeters. The legislative session that ended earlier this month provided them plenty of opportunity.
When the two go back and forth on Twitter, Weiler said followers assume they can’t stand each other, but in reality, they’re fond friends — Weiler likens it to two puppies play fighting. Behind that effect are philosophies in common for the two senators on rules of decorum between politicians and their followers on social media.
“I believe a good, free flow of ideas is a good idea,” Dabakis said.
But Dabakis said he doesn’t have “any place” for Twitter users who get vulgar or attack other people.
