This isn’t merely a way to practice Hip Politics. As has been reported already, the Obama campaign has made tremendous use of text message, most notably by encouraging attendees of various campaigns events to send a text message to the Obama campaign. This allows the campaign to not only increase their supporter database, but also send potential Obama voters information about voting stations, dates, times and campaign news.
Obama’s decision to announce his veep pick via text message is unique, but one has to wonder if word won’t leak out beforehand, in one of those tragically unhip, traditional mainstream media outlets.
What do you think of Obama’s move? (h/t: Stelter)
