A look back on some of John Dingell's greatest tweets
Dingell didn't use his Twitter feed just to comment on politics. He also weighed in on Michigan sports teams (specifically his love for the University of Michigan), joked about his age, made some sick burns, and weighed in on current events.

Hatred, bigotry, & fascism should have no place in this country.
As this Congress begins, a bit of advice for new Members that I received back in 1955:— John Dingell (@JohnDingell) January 3, 2019
For the next six months you're going to wonder how the hell you got here. Then one day you'll come on to the House floor, look around, and wonder how in the hell all the other fools got here.
