Sen. Chuck Grassley is a master of efficiency when it comes to Twitter, and in just one tweet has managed to invite three gun manufacturers to Iowa and tout the state’s business-friendly atmosphere.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry is a bit more leisurely in his tweets; each manufacturer gets a separate but similar invitation: come on down!
Hey PTR…Texas is still wide open for business!! Come on down! http://t.co/5V3bFTVry9
