John Edwards on Twitter In a post last week I suggested that campaigns start using Twitter to update activists on their activities. 

Lynne Johnson over at TechPresident reports that John Edwards and Barack Obama appear to have done just that and created accounts. 

Obama hasn't posted at all and Edwards has posted only four times since January 7.  In addition, Edwards has not added Twitter to his endless list of social networking sites he maintains a presence on.  At this point it looks like the Twitter equivalent of reserving a domain name and its not clear whether they will be posting updates. 

Be interesting to see what happens with this.  Note to all campaigns: reserve your name on the service now even if you aren't going to use it.
