Those who follow me are well aware that I’m not a big supported of either Presidential candidate Mitt Romney nor President Barack Obama. With that said, I think it’s important to come to the defense of Romney as he is involved in a minor social media debacle that wasn’t his doing nor the doing of his team.
Mitt Romney learned a hard lesson during the Iowa GOP Candidates Debate on December 10, 2011. We’ve always known that journalists are looking for quotes and sound bites every time major candidates take the stage. Today, social media acts to not only amplify the sound bites, but also to give journalists a way to gauge public sentiment about what is being said.
