The IPC's Research & Communications Associate, Amanda Peterson Beadle, was singled out in a National Journal article for her comprehensive Twitter coverage of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on S.744. From the Article:
"When in doubt, follow Twitter. It's hard to keep track of what's happening, even when you're in the room. Senators offer amendments but sometimes forget to tell everyone which ones they're talking about. The committee gets tired and sometimes passes big amendments by voice vote with barely a whimper from the opposition. Some senators say the same thing over and over and over again, regardless of the issue at hand. Don't be afraid to look at your neighbor's notes or computer to figure it out. Hell, you're sitting close enough."
