The third and final U.S. Presidential debate takes place at 9 p.m. ET and Team Romney has already come out swinging on Twitter.
The Presidential hopeful has purchased a promoted trend and it would probably be trending without them paying for it as both sides are lighting it up.
Will you be watching the debate?
We told you about the Turkish pianist, Fazil Say, who faces jail time for allegedly mocking Islam on Twitter. Then today we read about four people being arrested for allegedly defaming Bahrain’s king on Twitter. And there was that student jailed not too long ago for racist tweets and don’t even get me started on the Olympics.
What’s going on? Are governments cracking down on Twitter or is social media slowly chipping away at our common sense?
If you caught the debate last night and have spent any time online today, you undoubtedly have seen many posts poking fun at Romney’s “binders of women” comment.
Well, Twitter went all out (as expected) and we have some favorites to share.
Twitter is quickly turning into a political machine. Politicians are tweeting campaign slogans, behind-the-scenes pictures and calls-to-action for citizens to go out and vote.
And now Twitter is entering the coveted political donation arena. New stats from Twitter Advertising show that users who see paid advertising from politicians visit campaign donation websites 97 percent more frequently than those who don’t.
There have been plenty of repercussions of people taking to Twitter to vent their frustrations, most involving either athletes (and other athletes…and more athletes), political activists or politicians themselves – but the latest Twitter snafu happened to a certain Mr. Jack Welch, arguably one of the top CEOs of all time.
We’re less than a month away from the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election, and, suffice to say, things are heating up.
Digital media is playing a huge role for both President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in their respective election campaigns, but which candidate’s videos are getting the most shares across Facebook, Twitter and blogs?
Those crazy bipartisan twitterers are at it again – and this time they’re throwing down with dueling hashtags: #ObamaCampaignIn3Words and #RomneyCampaignIn3Words.
Who wins? No one really, but they’re fun to read.
