DMing with Strangers

BY Nancy Scola | Tuesday, May 24 2011

The Daily Caller's Jonathan Strong is running with a cache of Twitter direct messages sent by Sarah Palin aide Rebecca Mansour to someone she "thought was a friend," brief notes that reveal Mansour's thinking about the political world she finds herself in. (A taste: Romney's supporters are "wacky as hell" and the Palins aren't the Cleavers.) Politco's Ben Smith reports that that online friendship didn't preclude the recipient from trying to sell the messages to him as early as last fall.
