You’ve gotta love (or hate) a journalist who lists off Twitter rules in the middle of a Washington shooting crisis. I mean, what’s not to love about that? We all need to learn to speak civilly to one another in these heated times and what a better way to learn? If not now, when?
So thank you David Frum of CNN and The Daily Beast.
He starts out, “In wake of this most recent mass-casualty shooting, it is important that we all respect the feelings of America’s gun enthusiasts. Observing a few simple rules of etiquette will help the post-shooting conversation to proceed in appropriate ways.”
And now, the rules.
Even his conservative cohorts were relieved when he shut his Twitter trap.
“We can at least be grateful that @davidfrum stopped tweeting almost an hour ago,” wrote Kat McKinley of the Houston Chronicle and Newsbusters.
Mediaite Senior Editor Andrew Kirell replied to McKinley, “Hallelujah.”
