It's no secret that Big G's tight with the federal government, whether it's White House staff hanging out

Essentially, this means Republicans at the gathering will use sites like YouTube and Google+ to stream live events and pop in at the occasional Hangout. That said, it wouldn't surprise us if attendees dabbled in that other social network, as it's no stranger to politics
, either. Too bad Santorum's not around to try on those snorkeling goggles
