Presidential Candidates 9/11 Tweets For The Day….
Anyone else see an issue here?
What actually happened today:
- An Obama staffer told people to sign up to vote.
- A Romney staffer sent a condolence tweet.
- Actual Romney gave a campaign speech to the national guard.
- Actual Obama gave a memorial speech at the pentagon for the 4th year in a row.
THANK YOU FOR SETTING THAT STRAIGHT.
THIS. Also, speaking as someone who works a lot with large social media channels (i.e. that is literally my job), the likelihood is VERY HIGH that Obama’s staff schedules generic tweets like that WAY in advance. It’s a huge time suck to sit there and tweet all the time. People generally have better things to do.
Stuff that gets shared online is usually either fun to watch (nyancat) or significant to all our lives in some way (Kony 2012). Upworthy, a new project from The Onion‘s Peter Koechley, MoveOn.org’s Eli Pariser and Facebook’s Chris Hughes, aims to share the viral content that’s both.
The goal of the site is to be the ultimate source of viral social good content — the creators want you to enjoy what’s posted, think about it and share it with all your friends in a digital “pay it forward” routine. They’re focused on answering “how do you take the best parts of the Internet and mix them with things that are substantive?”
“…We believe the things that matter in the world don’t have to be boring and guilt-inducing,” reads an opening post on Upworthy. “And the addictive stuff we love doesn’t have to be completely substanceless.”
