Gov. Rick Scott turns 65 today, looking about the same as he did when he took office in 2011.

But if he wants to truly enjoy this special day, where he won't have to worry about people taking swipes at him, he might want to avoid the Twitter machine.

His one-time ally, Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, took to Twitter on Thursday night and mentioned an old line of attack on Scott.

Latvala was responding to Scott's comments earlier where he said the Senate Appropriations Chair had become  a "distraction."

Then again, Scott might be pleased to find others on Twitter are echoing him.
