Mike Crapo: Hippest Idahoan in DC

Sorry, Jim Risch. You’re going to have to up your cool factor if you want to catch up with Mike Crapo.

Crapo was recently featured on Buzzfeed for being one of a handful of US senators who use Vine, an iPhone application that produces and shares six-second videos. (Note: I don’t get it. Why bother with a six-second video? Does this admission make me less cool than Crapo?)

This isn’t Crapo’s only social media presence. He’s active on Instagram, where he (or a staff member) documents his travels and meetings with retro-looking photographs. He’s also a prolific tweeter and an active Facebook user.  (For real insights into Crapo’s work, follow Judd Deere, his digital media director and press secretary.)

Risch, Raul Labrador and Mike Simpson all have Twitter and Facebook pages, but I couldn’t find any of them on Instagram or Vine. They have some major catching up to do if they want to be as hip as Crapo.
