Nancy Pelosi Abdicates on Twitter

Nancy Pelosi changed her Twitter handle from @SpeakerPelosi to @NancyPelosi within hours of the House's new Republican leadership being sworn in, probably because @MinorityLeaderPelosi sounds lame. But least she can taunt politicians with actual power more efficiently now.

The new username is, Pelosi writes, "two characters shorter... [retweeters] rejoice!" And also, retweeters, keep an eye out for Pelosi's next post, in which she'll suggest that @JOHNBOEHNER change his handle to @SpeakerCrybaby, @TooGoodForTSA or just @WWWWAAAAA.
