'Why I Quit Twitter' by Ben Sasse

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse quit Twitter over Christmas last year, 
after having built himself a reputation as one of Congress' 
most prolific tweeters

Sasse said he will return to social media at some point in the future, 
but in a limited capacity

Republican Senator Ben Sasse is known as one of the more prolific Twitter users in Congress, often writing his own tweets himself to chime in on policy issues, crack jokes, and in some cases, rebuke President Donald Trump.

Sasse On Alabama Senate Race:
'Feels Like this Party -That I’m a Part of-
has Gone Post-Constitutional'

Allahpundit RedState:
An interesting bit from Jonah Goldberg’s podcast, The Remnant. Goldberg puts Sasse on the spot by asking whether he’ll be following the lead of his libertarian-ish colleagues in the Senate -Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and most recently Ted Cruz- by endorsing Roy Moore, who’s as far from libertarian as a Republican can get. 

Sasse won’t give him a straight answer, pleading that he hasn’t followed the race closely, but he’s followed it closely enough to know that Moore thinks Muslims should be barred from holding seats in Congress. That’s a religious test, he notes, which is barred by the Constitution, and he’s not ready for a 'post-constitutional' party.
