DETROIT (AP) — Right up until the end, John Dingell wouldn’t go down without a fight — or a tweet.
The longest-serving member of Congress in American history, who died on Thursday at 92, boasted more than 250,000 followers on the account he started in 2010.
Dingell was long known for his wry takes and quick wit alongside his mastery of legislative deal-making. But the longest-serving Congress member’s musings on Twitter drew widespread interest and kept him au courant.
Favorite topics and targets for the outspoken Democrat included President Donald Trump and his favorite Michigan sports teams.
