An interesting Twitter convo:
It’s so nice to know our compassionately conservative friends answer true, honest and civil debate (along with completely valid questions) with ad hominem attacks. Wait. I thought only liberals did that. I’m confused.
And none of that even adds up to being the tiniest bit of a tip of the iceberg. Obama, the dictator? That notion is just about as crazy (and, yes, I mean crazy as in clinically delusional) as Liberty Counsel’s claims that Obama is planning to ‘subvert’ the Constitution.
Neo-cons are weird sort of creature. People with Alzheimer’s have better memory function than these folks.
P.S. — There’s no such thing as “The Liberal Media.” I highly recommend Glenn Greenwald’s excellent piece: “Octavia Nasr and what The Liberal Media allows.”
P.P.S. — Again, I’ll repeat: “I’m telling you: The right wing agenda is evil, insidious and pernicious. Nothing more. Nothing less. (Although the words “sick” and “twisted” come to mind, too.)”
You know the media world has definitively changed when the local daily newspaper announces its hosting a social media conference.
The Charlotte Observer will host their day-long conference on Jan. 23 at Queens University:
Throughout the day, you’ll hear from some of the most forward-thinking social media gurus in the region, including Jeff Elder, Lisa Hoffman, Crystal Dempsey, Scott Hepburn and Jason Silverstein. Observer Editor Rick Thames will deliver the keynote address. Capping it all off will be a panel discussion on “The Next Hot Thing in Social Networking.”
The event is only $30, but there are only 200 spaces open. If you want to go, you’d better register quick. Get more info and register at ObserverSocialMedia.com.
Along with following election results on county boards of election sites, news sites and TV, I’d also been following updates via twitter yesterday and through today. It got a little interesting this morn.
It seems I “butted in” to what others thought might have been a private conversation. The problem? They were chatting on twitter. Not exactly a place for a private chat, you know.
The complete back story and run-down after the jump…
A short, but hilarious twitter convo to help take your mind off whatever political mayhem in which you currently find yourself overwhelmed:
The Southern Voice reports:
In typical Twitter style, where capitalization and punctuation are optional, Kutcher wrote: “can we just get clear, calling some one ‘gay’ or ‘fag’ is as derogatory as calling someone a ‘nigger’. U look like an idiot when you do it.”
The statement came in an exchange between Kutcher and another user on the popular social networking site, which allows users to communicate in 140-character bursts to those who choose to follow their Twitter feeds.
I have to say, though, it be much, much better if Kutcher was gay, not just gay-friendly. But I’ll take gay-friendly, I guess. Darn it.
