Republican points of view are so simple that they can be summed up in 140 characters or less.
 
2013-04-09 11:07:35 AM
That's "tweekers" Subby.  Please check your spelling and avail yourself of the Preview button.
 
2013-04-09 11:25:05 AM
Yeah, Democrats are too busy doing their actual jobs.
 
2013-04-09 11:25:32 AM
Quantity does not equal quality Subby.

*checks Facebook*

Yeah, the right posts more but it's usually extremely derpy and always anti-Obama. The left leaning stuff people are posting seems to be more issues related.

IT World? It's a bunch of Aspies... they probably think that "I HAVE A BOX OF LEMONHEADS! AND YOU DON'T!! #ferrarapan" is edgy.
 
2013-04-09 11:42:16 AM
Yeah, old people love Twitter.

It's like the random cries in a ward full of dementia patients.

My grandfather had dementia, he was very concerned with someone stealing his grapefruits. And sticking utensils into the garburator.

And it really helped them win the 2012 election in a landslide
 
2013-04-09 11:47:55 AM
Yep, they have time to listen to AM radio, tweet, make up shiat, whatever their heart desires. The rest of us are busy at work. Um, who are the "takers," again?
 
2013-04-09 11:48:24 AM
Republicans are just better at getting out their talking points.
Wake up sheeple.

Using the internets is key to regaining the young people votes.

It's impressive that they and their staff have time for social media, considering all their legislative work.

Actually, Republicans garner huge laughs. Just unintentionally.
 
2013-04-09 12:13:36 PM
Let's randomly look at the most recent tweets from the official RNC (GOP) twitter page:

>@RNCLatinos: Hector Barreto ".@BarackObama is letting the unions take over and hurt small businesses"

>The left will stop at nothing! FBI investigating whether liberal media org illegally bugged McConnell campaign HQ. http://bit.ly/148OhE1

>Obama to NYC to dine w/ more of millionaire & billionaire buddies. Not even the Dems think this a good idea.

Wow, real deep stuff, and from the Republican National Committee, no less. It doesn't get more intelligent than that!
 
2013-04-09 12:24:37 PM
Given Republicans have a lousy, flawed message to communicate I'm more than okay with this.

If there's one thing I've learned from 10 years on Fark, it's that being a stupid asshole can be easily defended simply by claiming "snark".
 
2013-04-09 12:28:36 PM
Twitter is the Tourette Syndrome of the internet. I'm not surprised that Republicans adapted to it better.

Or 'satire.' Claimed by that thought-provoking satirist, Sarah Palin.

And just a day or two ago we had an article claiming it's just the fringe pundits who don't speak for the party advancing conspiracy theories and the derp.

Please tell me that second one is a parody account or something.  I really don't know if I can handle a member of this country's political class saying something like that.
 
2013-04-09 12:36:10 PM
And yet they can't figure out why intelligent people think they are homophobic, racist and dishonest.  The Intertubes.  How do they work?
 
2013-04-09 12:39:46 PM
The problem is nobody is reading these tweets except the MSM scanning for laughs. GOP voters are not using twitter or  the internets, you know that is how Obama is going to steal their guns.

Nope.  That guy is full of such gems.  And he doesn't apologize for any of it.

Google tells me that he's the former head of the SC GOP, he just got engaged, he's done Anthony Weiner/Brett Favre style sexting in the past, and his wedding registry's online with a bunch of boring stuff.

well, tweedledum and tweedledee are and always have been republicans and the first to ever tweet. the original tweets.


Tweedledum and Tweedledee    Agreed to have a battle;For Tweedledum said Tweedledee    Had spoiled his nice new rattle.Just then flew down a monstrous crow,    As black as a tar-barrel;Which frightened both the heroes so,    They quite forgot their quarrel

I think it's all part of the Republican outreach to women and minorities.

Well, between all the tweeting they're doing, and Fox's push to show you that black conservatives exist, they should have that youth vote sewn up for the next election. As a commie lib pinko libbocom, I'm frankly terrified.
 
2013-04-09 12:52:26 PM
I can't help but notice the words "staffers" and "aides" are missing from the headline. Or does anyone actually believe that Congressman Getoffmylawn and Senator Stuckinthefifties actually manage their own FB & Twitter accounts?

Twitter's terrible because it really amplifies the idea of "winning the argument" as opposed to having a discussion. You never really see any dialogue, just someone writing something snarky and saying "YES! I WON!"

Especially when you have people like Michelle Malkin and her idiotic site Twitchy. She just takes random tweets from nobodys and posts them up as evidence of what "the left" is saying. It's the ultimate in false equivalence. "Oh yeah? A Republican Congressman was throwing the term "wetback" around a week ago like it was an ok thing to say? Well here's @SexyShirt13 saying gun owners should be killed! TAKE THAT LIBERAL HYPOCRITES YOU ARE OFFICIALLY WORSE THAN US! WE WIN!"
 
2013-04-09 01:13:26 PM
Sure helped them win that Presidential election!

/oh...wait...

Republicans dominate YouTube comments, too, as well as graffiti on truckstop washroom walls and messages smeared in feces on the walls of low-quality nursing homes.
 
2013-04-09 01:17:36 PM
Maybe spend less time tweeting and more time governing.
