Debate: Perry recovers, Cain wades in the shallows

In case you missed tonight's debate, here's a quick summary by the Des Register's excellent political columnist, Kathie Obradovich.

Tonight’s debate on foreign policy helped Texas Gov. Rick Perry get his head above water after his campaign-swamping stumble on Wednesday. Herman Cain, meanwhile, never got out of the shallow end of the pool.

Is Twitter a business? You betcha! says CEO Dick Costolo | CONEY MEDIA

"It took three years to send the first billion tweets, and we now send a billion tweets every six days.”

The average engagement rate — where an engagement is a click, a reply or a retweet — is orders of magnitude bigger, better than traditional digital media advertising.

Twitter’s rise is a tactical challenge for campaigns: How do they use a service that could, theoretically, give everyone on the campaign a bullhorn and gives candidates and staffers alike a chance to confront rivals and opponents in full view of the public and media? It’s a challenge that could prov

Mike Lupica in today's Daily News [http://nydn.us/mjRb3L]: "You want to talk about pictures that matter today? Talk about the pictures of Gabrielle Giffords that we saw over the weekend. Look at the smiling pictures of her, what we all want to be a good, pure light behind her eyes.

"Rep. Giffords comes back from real rehab, because somebody pointed a gun at her and fired it, not because she pointed a camera at herself."

Politicians flock to Twitter to reach constituents

"Twitter is becoming the new TV."

The key is balance, Dem consultant Roger Salazar said. "Do it in moderation, you're accessible. If you overdo it, you're a media whore. If you underdo it, you're ducking the press."

That means, Gil Duran said, that elected officials must remember one thing before hitting the "send" button: "Live by the tweet, die by the tweet."

New York Rep. Anthony Weiner's uncomfortable, unforgettable moment of un-"certitude" last week regarding a sexually suggestive photo tweeted to a 21-year-old female follower has only added to the mysteries about...

When Rep. Weiner keynoted the Congressional Correspondents Dinner in March, he began: "I will keep my remarks brief."

"Perhaps it was foreshadowing," notes Fox blogger Chad Pergram. [http://bit.ly/ilryEl]

Weiner brags of his Twitter prowess [5:40], adding, "I have a reputation of being… a master of the person-to-person interview … When people [say] they want more civility in politics… they're talking about me."

American Political Leaders Are Clueless About New Media

Clueless in Washington:

"I don’t get news on my phone. I don’t use Facebook or Twitter. I want substance," Rep Barney Frank told the Atlantic.

Yes that is a generalization, but I would argue it is generally true. Presidential advisors Karen Hughes and Mark Penn demonstrated it in their keynote talk at BlogWorld last year. Congressman Weiner is learning about the true meaning of transparency right now. Former GOP Congressman Chris Lee learn

Success of Scottish National Party tied to "cutting edge high-tech approach" in use in US, not in UK, incl SM + ustom "Nation Builder" program.

"It wasn't like a rock thrown into a pond and a big wave happens like you might have in the traditional press, a big story one day." New media ripples "hit the edges of the pond and started coming back in again, so it's like a big echo chamber."

Poll: US social media users favor Israel

Israel has friends in social media.

Every anti-Israel post in US SM was trumped by an average of 3 pro-Israel posts, a Pew student found.

"55% supported Israel and opposed a return to 1967 lines, 19% supported an inception of a Palestinian state, 27% said they had no opinion on the matter.

"Some 60% of Facebook and Twitter users expressed their support of Israel, 20% sided with Palestinians and 20% were neutral."

There's an uproar in Britain over Fédération Internationale de Football Assoc President Sepp Blatter (is he worse that Col. Gaddafi? … is Twitterverse uprising "Global Soccer’s Arab Spring"?)

"Problem with Twitter is that, when a topic starts trending, it’s easy to lose all sense of perspective [and] an internecine dispute between sports administrators [is] elevated to the status of a major diplomatic incident."

Up went the cry on Twitter: ‘Let’s get #BlatterOut trending.’ And, hey presto, the Twittersphere was soon awash with Blatter-bashing tweets.

THIS MORNING'S WEINER

The tabloids' print editions continue to pump the congressman's Twitter scandal, altho he was bumped off the Daily News' cover by the Upper East Side rapist.

The News' inside Weiner lead is "He's Just Gonna Groin & Bear It!" [http://www.nydailynews.com/index.html], Inside the Post it's "Weiner Hung Out To Dry; Fellow Dems keeping hands off Anthony's expanding scandal" [http://www.nypost.com/]. And yes, there's lots more.

Candidates embrace social media with varying degrees of success

IOWA'S COMING: Presidential hopefuls are ratcheting up their SM strategies. "In 2008, Mitt Romney had 41,479 Facebook supporters. Thus far in 2011, [he] has 935,959" and a 99-cent app.

Meanwhile, we're reminded that SM isn't the only alt to traditional media. "The Daily Show and Colbert Report have increasingly become sources of info for voters." You think?!

Here's are a report from Iowa State student newspaper—

During the 2008 election, Barack Obama dominated new media by reaching supporters through his use of email, social-networking sites and texting. Now, Republican Mitt Romney has launched a new application for the iPhone and Android.

The Voter Effect

THE VOTER EFFECT: "Obama changed politics forever" by effectively using social media. Now, SM is "a leveling agent" that extends beyond campaigns and into the politics of governance. A Website-anchored network — a movement — is working to organize this energy by increasing transparency and smoothing people's access to political data and officialdom.

The Voter Effect makes it simple and easy for every voter anywhere in the U.S. to create change and impact our future. Vote on bills. Raise issues. Hold your elected officials accountable. Make your vote count. Every day.
