Twitter wars are becoming more and more interesting these days, with Perez Hilton calling Demi Moore’s and Bruce Willis’ daughter names and now with the social networking site assailed with President Obama calling Kanye West a “jackass”.

On Monday, ABC News reporter Terry Moran revealed on his Twitter page that President Barack Obama, while on another network, had referred to Kanye West using the word jackass. “Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at the VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’s presidential,” he said.

The CNBC reporter who took the interview objected that the quote was from an off-the-record portion of the interview, and Moran (ABC) was forced to apologize and to delete his Tweet just one hour after posting it.

It’s really funny to see how powerful Twitter has become, and if we’re to consider the new venture capital raise for around $50 million and the company’s valuation for billions of dollars, we can only expect it to grow more. Isn’t it?
