Short Attention Span Musing: Fun With Social Media


By Craig McDermott, crossposted from Random Musings

I’ve been trying to write something about last week’s mass murder in Charleston, but my thoughts are so jumbled, nothing I’ve written is all that coherent (outrage tends to do that to me), so, for now anyway, I’m going to go with a weekly dose of snark, in the form of “Fun with social media”.

…Now for the “Yes, there is a divide in the country, and sometimes it is obvious enough to show up in my Twitter feed” department –

I’ve got no problem with Twitter generating revenue with “promoted” posts and the like, but they should really pay attention to context…

Dear Rep. Livingston: The guy with the gun was the one in the church murdering people because of the color of their skin, not Hollywood.
