Democrat or Republican, we’re always excited when someone makes a big splash on social media because it means we get to look at some data, and data is awesome.
Are these 49 characters a waste of your 160 character allotment for your Twitter bio? I suspect so, because if I tweet something outrageous or offensive, those 49 characters are not a firewall from getting fired, or even from a client firing my employer for that matter. Just look at Rashard Mendenhall whose tweets were seen as a little too sympathetic to Osama Bin Laden. Had he had a “tweets don’t reflect the views of my endorsers” disclaimer, would he have lost his endorsements? Absolutely.
