You know that scene in Poltergeist, where it’s a quiet night and Whatshername experimentally cracks open the door to the haunted bedroom — and suddenly it’s all screaming and howling and shit flying around the room and records playing themselves? That scene?
Twitter is exactly like that lately.
Oh, I admit it’s kind of fun when things go my partisan way. It was awesome to watch the shitstorm today when President Change We Can Believe In said “you can’t change Washington from the inside” (he’s said it before, but that was back before he was on the inside. It’s a really bad message for an incumbent begging for re-election).
Mostly, though, I’m having a hard time matching pace with the Twitter cycle in election season. It’s all a little screamy and hand-wavy for me. I’m sure I must have mentioned my legendary cool, yes?
