Forum Post: ^--^_? Trending on Twitter - Corporations Have No Tongues

Go ahead. Tweet that.

Corporations Have No Tongues!

I guarantee once twitter tracking software picks that up, someone, somewhere, possibly an aide on Capital Hill, maybe a lobbyist, or someone in private industry, will sit up and spew coffee all over their keyboard.

So go ahead. Tweet. Then sit back, and smile.

CNN hosting Repelican debate right now - tweet your questions

I don't know what the cnn hash tag is, I'm on dial-up - If I knew I would tweet:

Why did the issue on a blue dress trump matters of national security in the wake of the bombing of the USS Cole?

That's probably too many characters . . .

Haha!

Humorus Hyperbole!

Isn't it great?

Some of them love to run campaigns on the basis of what they call a "bumper sticker mentality". We can easily use that.

Here's an idea sabotage the printing presses that makes the bumper stickers so that after the first rain will wash away the candidates name away and WALA humorus hyperbole GIVE ME THE VISE GRIPS! WALA WALA

That's hysterical!

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (13220) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

I'll be posting more on Twitter and why tweet, and how we can measure the success of exactly this type of campaign.

That is, as soon as I have a few moments to write it up.

Nice

I wish I had thought of the tweet piece of this before the GA ended tonight. I know the fuckers will freak - in direct proportion to the significance of the trend.

BWA haha!

[-] 0 points by USCitizenVoter (720) 2 years ago

The possibilities are endless, although the Chinese might try to steal the credit from you. BWA hahaha

I rather hope it's the Tibetans . . .

[-] 0 points by USCitizenVoter (720) 2 years ago

Have you ever seen the look on the face of a pissed off Tibetan? Tibetans from Kham are known as a violent group of bandits. The Chinese who live in the Kham region are scared as hell of the Kham Tibetans. Don't go to sleep without one eye open or they will slit your throat in a heartbeat.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (13220) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

I hadn't heard that. I know that often people get that way when they are abused.

I had met a few Tibetans back in the early 90s. I don't think I've ever seen one of them pissed off - though I'm sure they have had occasion.

One of them graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont. I think he was a Rhodes Scholar. Anyway - he went back to Tibet to document their culture. I think it took him five years to get back.

There were stories that in the prisons the Chinese would beat the nuns, for the effect on the men. There were also stories about disease experiments.

His case made it to Amnesty Int. I never signed any of the petitions - I was afraid the wording of them wouldn't make the right impression on the Chinese.

The fact is I was afraid - not for me, you know - but I was. Nwang was a great guy. Not that I knew him that well . . . but he was.

Somehow Sens. Leahy and Jeffords both got him out. He didn't come back here though. And he didn't make any statements - he had too many friends he had left behind in China.

I'm not sure, but I think it must have been after - Sen. Leahy went to Tibet and took his camera. Some of the Tibetans hid posters of the Dali Lama beneath their clothes, and when the Chinese weren't looking they flashed the camera with the pictures.

.

Crazy, you know? God bless the Tibetans . . .

great story thanks for sharing it

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (13220) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

No actually it's not. It sucks.

You think the Syrians have it bad? Well yeah. Of course you do. Everyone does because it sucks to get shot.

There's other shit that may suck just a bit worse. I imagine being a Tibetan stuck in a Chinese prison ranks right up there among them.

But thanks anyway.

For most of us the world we are born in will never been fair. Kind of like drawing a bad poker hand you just want to toss the hand down but if your smart you'll gamble and run a bluff and hope to win. I understand what your saying for your freind to have tape over his lips in fear of a communist country wiping out his family sucks. Sometimes LIFE SUCKS BUT I WON'T LET THE GOVERNMENT STEAL MY JOY

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (13220) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

Me either.

My kinda joy is breaking things - like so:

Why don't you find out who owns large chunks of Twitter to see who is really smiling?

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (13220) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

I don't care who owns it - but if it happened Rupert Murdoch owned it, well. I think I would dance a jig knowing his own property were turned against him.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

he bought myspace

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (13220) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

the scumbag. After he bought it he had his minions fuck it all up. Blogging on myspace used to be great - write up a rant and turn it into a party. Now it's impossible to find the blogs. Indexing is gone.

They ceded the fight with facebook for popularity and just gave up.

buy the tools of social networking than let the business die

[-] 0 points by pinker (586) 2 years ago

Let it all sink in a while.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (13220) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

Let what sink in a while. I'd like to see it on bumper stickers and tee shirts all over. I suggested OWS Burlington put it on tee shirts and sell them. I don't care. You put it on tee shirts and sell them.

And tweet.

Then sit back, and smile.

[-] 0 points by pinker (586) 2 years ago

Yes, please do keep tweeting!
