My Favorite Inauguration Twitters

While watching the inauguration coverage I decided it would be fun to hit update as often as possible and read the twitter updates, here are some of my favorites:

Matt

 For full impact, Obama should be chased onstage for his swearing in by thousands of screaming teenage girls ala "A Hard Day's Night"
