Palin promises to keep on tweeting

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin plans to stay in touch using Twitter even after leaving office on July 26.

In a tweet posted July 17, Palin indicates that when she’s out of office, she’ll use a personal account on the social networking site to stay in touch.

Palin’s tweet said, “elected is replaceable; Ak WILL progress! + side benefits10 dys til less politically correct twitters fly frm my fingertps outside State site.”

The governor says in another message that in the meantime, “it’s a pleasure to update interested folks on State biz!”

Palin, who was visiting the coastal town of Unalakleet, is believed to be eyeing a 2012 run for the presidency.

She routinely posts messages on Twitter, a social-networking site where posts are limited to 140 characters. Her postings on July 17 included news about planning for the inauguration for Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell, who Palin wrote would have the same cabinet with the “same positive pro-AK agenda it’s all good.”
