The West Wing Continues on Twitter

150 150 Spot Cool Stuff

If you miss the superbly-written television series The West Wing (like Spot Cool Stuff does) then you may be interested and surprised to learn (as Spot Cool Stuff was) that the series is still running on Twitter.

Sort of.

There are no longer budget showdowns, assassination attempts, politically inconvenient romantic trysts and other such plot twists. But the characters from the series do interact and comment on current events in 140 character increments.

Who exactly is behind these Twitter accounts we know not. We do know that there are LOTS of them. Even some of the most minor characters—including C.J. Cregg’s pet goldfish (!)—are on Twitter. Interestingly, the frequency of the tweets don’t seem to correspond to the importance of the character on the show.

Here’s our list of West Wing characters in Twitter, divided by how active their accounts are but otherwise in no particular order:
