#rsrh Hi, @jesseclee44! Enjoying my tax money?

Of course you are: you’re a Democrat.

Anyway, I’m given to understand that your job with the federal government is going to be to wander the Internet looking for people who are willing to say in public* that your boss President Barack Obama is a petulant man-child with delusions of adequacy and a profession skill set incapable of organizing an orgy in a bordello; presumably at that point you will quote-unquote ‘do battle’ with them, a la Terminator style.  Speaking as one of the @RedState folks, I’m sure that my posts will result in you engaging in highly entertaining flailing about… Continue reading #rsrh Hi, @jesseclee44!

Jake Tapper illustrates the use of Twitter.

Somebody in the regular media was whining about what the point of Twitter was, a few days ago.  The answer?

Rerouting around obstacles.

Let me be the first to suggest that Twitter’s DDOS woes are… geopolitical.

I have no absolutely evidence along those lines, but frankly I wouldn’t put it past the Iranian regime at all to pay somebody to cyber-bomb Twitter.  It’s certainly been comprehensive enough to fit the enhanced requirements of a nation-state.

…HAH!  It literally went up just as I wrote that!  Clearly, someone was monitoring my post.

Heedlessness Watch: White House Tweeter feed broken.

In the grand scheme of things, I suppose that this isn’t much of a much. Petty, unthinking, heedless, and completely indifferent to the historical record:

Barack Obama‘s Webheads are getting ready to launch a new Twitter feed for President Change. But the White House already had a Twitter account. It has disappeared down the memory hole.

Given the widespread belief that Obama invented the Internet, many will scoff at the idea that the Bush White House had a Twitter account. But it did — and the administration handed over twitter.com/thewhitehouse at noon on Inauguration Day, just like it did with the whitehouse.gov website. Google still has the old account, with Obama’s tweets, in its cache [ed. – In fact, as Mere Rhetoric notes, the actual material’s gone].

…but not the worst thing that this administration has managed to do so far.  Still, a little annoying:  I got used to having the grown-ups be in charge of running the country.
