Deb Morrow plans to tweet again.
Morrow, a Democratic challenger for the 4th U.S. Congressional District seat held by Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, announced Wednesday she will reopen her Morrow4Congress account.
In a release sent out by her campaign, Morrow wrote,
"Twitter is a vital communications component of social networking especially for those young voters new to the political process. It is also the most practical outlet for instant information in the highly fluid world of politics and legislative actions. It would be unfair to deprive my base of current and potential supporters of my platform and opinions, so they can make an informed decision come November 6th."
Morrow, who said that the account was hacked in the release, said at the time of the incident closing down the account was the appropriate action.
However, Morrow did tell the Free Times in Columbia, she did not post the tweet and wasn't aware that it had appeared on her campaign website. Morrow told the paper that she has shut down the account and that only a handful of people had access to the account, including a former staffer.
Morrow said the process to determine the identities of those responsible could be a long one.
