Andrea Mitchell NAILS It On Why Trump Wins: ‘Tweets Matter’
To be clear, Andrea Mitchell is usually wrong, and even in this case is mostly wrong, but she gets one thing so totally correct in this clip Mediaite highlights today that it hurts my brain. “Facts no longer matter. Tweets matter.” This is 100% correct. Trump voters vote for the lie that Trump tells them, not for what he actually is, or what he actually | Read More »

Social Media As a Tool to Promote Life
This past week was again a reminder of how precious life is, and how easily it can disappear.

Tech at Night: The Obama administration wants to criminalize retweets
Yeah, terrorism is terrible, and we need to run Islamic State folks into prison, but the idea that a retweet is criminal, given the nature of how Twitter works, is kind of silly. It’s clear to me the Obama administration is just out of touch, as much as its FBI under James Comey is ridiculously power hungry.

Why I Said I’d Have Shot Michael Brown in the Face
I strongly believe twitter is a platform which is every bit a part of “real life” in that things said there can have huge consequences (see Anthony Weiner for example). And while I also believe Michelle Malkin is correct that social media “democratizes influence,” I’m of the opinion that there is a bubble of sorts in which some with less influence are treated as though | Read More »
How the GOP used social media to outsmart anti-free speech laws.
Looks like the NRCC was on the ball this cycle. Republicans and outside groups used anonymous Twitter accounts to share internal polling data ahead of the midterm elections, CNN has learned, a practice that raises questions about whether they violated campaign finance laws that prohibit coordination. Translation: they probably didn’t, which CNN will concede later. Moving on… …The groups behind the operation had a sense | Read More »
