Twitter or Bust

There are hundreds of social media outlets including this site but Twitter is a game changer.

Tonight I had great convos with people I’ve never met about Scottish independence and the conclusion I came to was if you don’t engage with people or potential voters on Twitter you can forget your chances of gaining power.

We are now in a position where we can directly effect the minds of politicians. If they play the game and adopt Twitter as a sounding board then we the people have a real chance of getting what we want. However on the politicians side they must engage and argue their points online in real time. Some of them do most of them don’t they just use spin headquarters to throw out the party line. These are the ones who will loose out when it comes to the ballot box.

TV is still highly relevant but social interaction beats it hands down.

I’d just like to finish by saying we Celtic fans are blessed by the amount of our players and especially our manager who spend time on Twitter communicating with the support none more than the Gaffer who’s card game commentaries are a good laugh and really make you feel part of the club.

This is what politicians are missing out on and my bet is that if they don’t engage with the electorate then there is nothing to stop Joe Blogs with intelligent debate on Twitter building up enough followers to get a seat in parliament on behalf of real people.

Make no mistake Social Media is changing the world that we grew up in.

  1. Guys, I have a wife that twitters from morning till night. To add hundreds more ‘voices’ to those she hears in her head would be ,for me at any rate, the first pretext to blow my brains out and, to be honest, I am not really into that as I feel it contains some slight disadvantages and, besides, guns cost a fortune. I will stick to the wee feathery things that twitter in our back garden in the morning while devouring all the mouldy bread I put out the night before. As for independence, I lost that after about two seconds in my mother’s womb. Since then I have been at the beck and call of somebody or something or other. True independence is a state of mind rather than a political ideology. I suppose that is easy for me to say having lived in England for the last fifteen years. However, if full control of one’s political destiny is good for the soul, then I am all for it. For me personally, being alive is contentment enough – you have no idea how that feels at my age :>))
