Former U.S. House speaker Newt Gingrich, who has supported making English the nation’s official language, knows a demographically driven political trend when he sees one.
The former Georgia congressman is now pushing the frontiers of social networking with a Spanish-language Twitter account. This rolled in from GingrichEspanol about an hour ago:
al capitolio para rueda de prensa: mas energia estadounidense para mas trabajos.Hace 1 año Bush levanto prohibicion de perforar por petroleo
According to our highly trained, resident linquist, Gingrich’s tweet translates thusly:
Going to the Capitol for a press conference: More American energy for more jobs. A year ago, Bush lifted ban on [offshore] oil drilling.
