Politicians Need to Smarten Up on Social Media. Please.

It must be the weather, but this week has been orientated towards politics. Maybe it’s because so many politicians make errors on social media. Sure we all do, but when you are in the public eye and supposed to represent the public in terms of policy, tread carefully.

This time round, in response to Toronto’s Mayor Rob Ford who wants to get rid of people with gun crimes (I think it’s called jail), federal immigration minister Jason Kenney posted a rather interesting tweet. I still don’t get why someone would set policy through twitter – this smacks of small village politics rather than something from a federal level.
