(Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP, File) by Alicia RancilioAssociated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) — It’s not coincidental that the stars of “Scandal” live tweet during episodes. They’re encouraged to do so. When several of the show’s actors recently visited New York to promote the premiere of season three, ABC made sure to book Kerry Washington on a return flight to Los Angeles that offered Wi-Fi. Other cast members had their trips extended so they could be available on the social networking site. Joshua Malina, who plays U.S. attorney David Rosen, relishes having a presence on Twitter. He describes his tweets as “self-promotion and dumb jokes.”
