According to internet futurist John Hinderaker, when it comes to Twitter-twatting, conservatives are kicking ass and taking LOL’s:
The Left Is Getting Clobbered on Twitter
We are in the early stages of the 2012 campaign season, with a lot of battlespace preparation going on. In the skirmishing so far, one perhaps surprising media advantage has become clear: the right is clobbering the left on Twitter.
Maybe it’s because Twitter puts a premium on brevity and cleverness. I don’t know. But for some reason, it seems to be a natural medium for conservatives. We saw it when the Hilary Rosen interview (“Ann Romney never worked a day in her life”) prompted a Twitterstorm. We saw it again when #ObamaEatsDogs exploded, and when #Julia blew up in the White House’s face like an exploding cigar.
If you haven’t yet started using Twitter, you should give it a try. You can follow, among countless others, Michelle Malkin, Jim Treacher, David Burge (Iowahawk), Jonah Goldberg, Melissa Clouthier, Big Government, Byron York, Ed Morrissey, Steve Hayward, and, as I said, countless more, including me.
I think it is wonderful that John Hinderaker and The Conservatives have landed on Twitter Beach, planted their flag, and claimed it as their own from which they can display their brilliance in 140 characters or less which will then go BOOM! like little words IED’s right in the libtards faces. After all, that is how elections (and wars!) will be won from this day forward. Of course, as Susan of Texas points out, to really get a feel for how conservatives have mastered the form (it’s their “natural medium”!), you need only turn to one of Hinderaker’s Recommended Twatters: author, noted conservative intellectual, 2-time Pulitzer nominee, 11-time Super Bowl participant (if by ‘participant’ you mean he watched it on TV) and founding member of the Algonquin Children’s Round Table at National Review Online, Jonah Goldberg to see how it is done:
This is why the editor and fact-checkers on Jonah’s new book were forced to surrender sharp objects as well as their belts and shoelaces when they came to work every day. For their own protection of course.
(Enthusiastic golf clap for Susan of Texas)
