Anthony Weiner

Sample tweet: "The funny thing is the Newt is considered the brains of that operation."

The feisty Democrat from New York once told a Manhattan bar crowd, "I follow Twitter for the Tea Party and just show up to f--- with them." That was obviously a joke, but that same brashness and sarcasm comes across in many of Anthony Weiner's tweets. He's also able to upload pictures, demonstrates actual understanding of hashtags and isn't afraid to make fun of himself. I mean, just check out his profile picture.

Update: On June 16, Weiner resigned his congressional seat, 10 days after admitting that he'd accidentally tweeted at least one lewd photograph of himself. So ... perhaps we overstated his savvy just a bit.
