As Twitchy reported, TweetGate broke Tuesday night when it was reported that Jofi Joseph, a White House national security official, was fired last week and exposed as Twitter user @natsecwonk. That account posted misogynistic and insulting tweets, along with insider information, for more than two years.
Amanda Carpenter, senior communications adviser to Sen. Cruz, notes something very telling about the firing:
WH official was fired for writing disparaging tweets about the administration. IRS scandal? Benghazi? Obamacare? No firings. Hm.

@amandacarpenter @CaptYonah Let him be clear, dissenters will be punished. Only question now is if this guy has already heard from the IRS.

@amandacarpenter The others did not personally insult Valerie Jarrett. Can't talk about somebody's mama and get away with it.

@amandacarpenter Good call. So the only way to get fired is to "step out of line." Incompetence, not a problem. @DavidLimbaugh

Hey, President Obama clearly feels a kinship with the incompetent. Birds of a feather!
