(Newser) – Meghan McCain likes being able to share the "humorously uncensored" moments of her life on Twitter but she's not so thrilled about sharing them with the likes of Karl Rove, she writes in her Daily Beast blog. "I am now being followed by Karl Rove, and my local sheriff, and God knows how many other political pundits," McCain writes. "We need to take Twitter back from the creepy people."

Rove's own Twitter feed was initially intriguing as it came from a supposedly "inaccessible man-behind-the-curtain figure," but his updates turned out to be dull and devoid of substance, McCain sniffs. Twitter is still maturing as a means of communication, "but I can’t shake the fact that Karl Rove is following me—it can be creepy. So watch out," she writes.
