There’s plenty of fresh news burning up Twitter right now: New York Governor David Paterson’s announcement that he won’t seek re-election—though people hardly seem surprised, and White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers’ announcement that she’s stepping down, a legitimate surprise. This morning Adam Serwer was singlehandedly holding it down over at the OPR hearings looking into how Jay Bybee and John Yoo got away. And folks are still celebrating South Korean figure skating star Kim Yu-na’s Olympic gold medal win last night.
Catch all that and more, plus a round-up of responses from the now ancient hot topic yesterday: President Obama’s healthcare summit. Yeah, remember that thing? We’ve got it all in this edition of your Friday Twitter Break! Remember to follow ColorLines over at @racialjustice, too.
