The Great Twitter Race

If Ashton and CNN were last month's hot Twitter-race, this month, we've got our eye on Senator John McCain and the White House!

McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) just surpassed the 1 million mark, easily beating out the White House account (@whitehouse) that has approximately 844,000 followers. Other popular politicians on the site lag behind, but still boast respectable followings; Missouri Democrat Claire McCaskill and South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint are the most followed but each have less than 30,000 subscribers.

The most watched politician still remains President Barack Obama (@BarackObama), and other notable political figures on Twitter include CA Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Vice President Al Gore.
