Proof That Congressman John Dingell Is the Best Politician on Twitter

Democrat John Dingell is a U.S. congressman, representing Michigan's 12th district. He has been in the House of Representatives for six decades, and he wielded significant power in the House as the chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee before losing his chairmanship in 2008.

He is also brilliant at Twitter.
