NPR senior strategist and Twitter maven Andy Carvin tweeted an astounding 1,201 times this weekend, including 879 on Sunday, according to Twittercounter.com. The flurry came as he covered the escalating Libyan revolution. At the close of Sunday, Carvin noted he "wouldn't be surprised if this is the most I've tweeted in a single day since Mubarak resigned. Around 900 tweets so far. Oy." It is at least the most in the past six months, according to Twitter Counter.
