Utah Senator Orrin Hatch is no slouch at social media. His official Twitter account is both cheeky and hilarious. Though most tweets are posted (physically) by/through his communications team, we’re assured they are “his voice.”

Hatch, of course, is retiring at the end of this term. We can hope he keeps tweeting, even in retirement. Regardless, Mitt Romney’s comms team had better step up their game.
