The simple fact that some moronic people take things written on Twitter seriously fills me with despair.
People, regardless or political orientation, who take twitter or facebook and anything written there as a basis for real world action remind me of an organ grinder’s monkey.
Dance monkey dance!
Twitter is a toy and a technologically advanced civil society cannot be maintained by people who take toys seriously (unless their business is making or selling toys, of course).
Nothing written there (or facebook) needs to be taken seriously or form the basis of policy in the real world.
The whole purpose of digital media has slowly but surely changed from letting smart people connect and learn about things and from each other into actively dumbing down the population and making people more easy to manipulate (across the political spectrum).
