It’s official once the Associated Press tweets the Government has officially shutdown. Twitter will be a major catalyst within the next few hours as people will be tweeting all night and news organizations will be seeing who can get the better story out first. I did see the New York Times article first, however, you can’t be the Associated Press. Did you readers notice how Facebook lagged posts about it all? Also on Twitter someone tweeted John Boehner’s phone number… I wonder if it works?
While some people will stay in the dark about the subject, like my roommate who didn’t know what a shutdown was, but maybe all of the commotion on social media will finally cause decisions to be made. Unfortunately, people will be affected and offices shut down. All we can do? Tweet, Facebook, Google +, Pin, etc. If our government officials can’t learn to play nice, they should be put in time out with the rest of the four year olds. I’m not saying boast your opinion… if you’re a journalist that’s an automatic DO NOT DO. I’m saying, tweet the hashtag #governmentshutdown and see yourself how a decision like this reaches millions just by clicking a button.
