Through a glass half empty or half full
Twitter the new plato’s cave.
I have spent the past few weeks catching up with lots of old contacts in person.
real life on the ground is significantly more pleasant and normal than the Internet or MSM would have us all believe.
Twitter is a bubble, you may think you are not enveloped within that bubble if you are a twattering classes activist, But I have got to break the news to you
that from the streets, ( I am wearing out a lot of shoe leather ) my perspective is that Twitter lacks boots on the ground real news. I think that the objectives for real news seeking, truth seeking essentially are not best served by commentating on the commentators and other commentaries, a sort of news room echo chamber has been the result..
I feel a little bit like the guy who returns to Plato’s cave, exposing google on the twitter or facebook platforms is absurd
More Vox populai and less twattering classes echo chamber.
The digital magic show is all without exception the enemy of liberty and human social relations, I fear that if the venerable Slog is missing the point, the blind are indeed leading the blind.
