Jon Huntsman: The Newest Twitter-lebrity

By Sarah Parnass on Aug 19, 2011 3:16pm

Jon Huntsman has found his voice in the form of 140 characters or less. The presidential candidate has been tweeting up a storm in the past 24 hours, and it seems no topic is off limits.

He began yesterday with a subtle jab at fellow candidate Rick Perry’s views on climate change:

@JonHuntsman: To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.

140elect.com, a site devoted to political twitter analysis, says Huntsman’s barb was retweeted over 3,600 times, the most retweets of any candidate in the 2012 race. He even beat out Sarah Palin’s most retweeted tweet by 50 percent.
