Twitter Town Hall

On Thursday, January 20, 2011, Scott held what was called a Twitter Town Hall, where the governor responded to questions from his constituents via the popular social media service Twitter. Questioners were told to direct their inquiries to Scott's Twitter account, @FLGovScott, and to use the hashtag #flgov. Scott would then retweet (re-post) the question and send a response. Scott responded to 22 questions during the Twitter Town Hall, but near the end of the session, he retweeted a question from Twitter user @PrettyTwister — "So what, are you gunna fire everyone and hire Walmart employees? Yeah, thats great... you jackass." — without answering it. This was an apparent mistake on the governor's part, since he ended the Twitter Town Hall five minutes later and deleted this re-posting from his Twitter page.
