100% of U.S. Senators, 90% of Reps Are On Twitter

Capitol HillOn Friday, Twitter announced that 100% of the US Senate and 90% of the House of Representatives are now active on Twitter.

When Congress convened back in 2011, only 44% of the Senate and 35% of the House were actively using Twitter.  The last two years have seen a huge change, with all of the Senate now using the service and 389 members of the House of Representatives.

Fully 29 states have their entire delegation tweeting (including senators and representatives), and every single US state has at least 70% of their delegation on Twitter.
