While Barack Obama twitters on two accounts, @WhiteHouse and @barackobama, Gibbs clearly doesn’t understand the power of the micro-blogging tool.

I’m sure Gibbs understands it — he’s very tech savvy. What he means is that the sensitive and classified information is not connected to computers using twitter, for obvious reasons.
