SARAH PALIN’S already having trouble with Twitter, just imagine how things will be if the former Alaskan Govenor becomes US President.

Palin ran into a few difficulties yesterday as she attempted to tweet. Despite only having to type 140 characters, she made three attempts to tweet before posting an error-free entry to her 193,000 followers.

In her first effort, she asked “peaceful Muslims to “pls refudiate” the mosque. Refudiate? It seems Sarah Palin has been inventing words – George Bush style.

In her second attempt she used “refute” incorrectly, calling on “peaceful New Yorkers to “refute the Ground Zero mosque plan”. Palin then removed both messages before settling on a third tweet “Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real”

But Palin hasn’t shied away from the controversy later tweeting “Refudiate,” “misunderestimate,” “wee-wee’d up.” English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!

We look forward to further refudiations!
