Twitter description in profile story of U.N. ambassador

With even the Kenyan military and the hostage takers using Twitter in this current siege, I’m contemplating the many ways Twitter shapes not just the news, but so many communications. Then along comes this paragraph in The New York Times, from a profile story about Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations:

Friends say she is unaccustomed to being called Madam Ambassador, or to having people rise when she enters a room. Her @AmbassadorPower Twitter account provides a hint of how she sees herself. “United States ambassador to the United Nations,” it reads. “Mother, human rights defender, teacher, writer and member of the @RedSox nation.”

  1. Like an ambassador who describes herself first as … mother! 🙂
