Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) did a great job using her Twitter account to rebut the CIA’s defense of enhanced interrogation techniques (EIT’s). According to Policy Mic, Sen. Feinstein, whose Senate Select Committee on Intelligence wrote the report, rebutted CIA Director John Brennan’s comments in real time during a hearing today today:
500-page exec summary is small part of 6,700-page report. No cherry picking. Everything is documented by 38,000 footnotes. #ReadTheReport

Her live tweets were retweeted between 91 and 470 times each, as of the writing of this post, in addition to earning her media attention from Policy Mic.
