His mad social media skills haven't gone unnoticed by our sister publication, the NYC-based Village Voice, who honored Grassley with the 2012 Tweet of the Year.
As our post from a few months back indicates, Grassley offered up handfuls of Tweet of the Year candidates in 2012. But here's the one that took the prize:
Grassley wasn't the only person with regional connections to win a Village Voice Web Award (to read about all of the various web awards, click here). Former Timberwolf Michael Beasley won GIF of the year for getting caught on camera somehow mistaking Anthony Tolliver's leg for his own:
Fred and I hit a deer on hiway 136 south of Dyersville. After I pulled fender rubbing on tire we continued to farm. Assume deer dead-- ChuckGrassley (@ChuckGrassley) October 26, 2012
Makes you wonder what Beasley was saying to Tolliver after he gave his knee a little rub. By the looks of it, he might've been asking him: "Chicken or go?"
