Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx eats the tweeter


Well, what did you expect of Ms. Manx? She’s a kitty. They eat shredded tweet for breakfast. And so do I, today…as we delve into just how important Twitter is NOT when it comes to Venezuelan politics.

If you’ve read this earlier post of mine, you’ll have a fair idea just how full of shit the lamestream media are when reporting the “latest” goshwow crap going on in Venezuela. Ooh, ahh, the Twitter Revolution is going to unseat the evil ‘Cito!

Only, alas, no.

In fact, Twitter isn’t even really news down there, and certainly not for serious observers of Chavecitolandia. Counterpunch and Chronically Clueless both ate the tweeter’s lunch MONTHS ago, both pointing out in detail just how and why the oppos will never tweet their way into power (or tweet the ‘Cito out of it, same diff). And the lamestream media are just kinda-sorta latching onto this non-story now? From the wrong angle, yet? FAIL.

Well, here’s something else they’ll never report: Following Chavecito’s recommendations, Chavistas are now countertweeting the oppos. The popular alternative media site, Aporrea, has its own twit-stream now. As does La Hojilla, the popular current-events show. Only they are using the tweeter the way it works best, as a quick way to get little newsy items out and onto people’s radars. And as a rapid-response system to counteract the oppo lies.

In other words: Big Corporate Media can’t even get little birdies right. It would be funny if it weren’t so damn pathetic.

    Agreed! That’s what I love about my Twitter account. If I read about some jerkwad, like the dipshit who wrote about the glories of the oligarchy in Venezuela on your page, I can hop over there and leave a nasty note. I don’t care if he ever reads it (it has to have been a he, the machismo came through so loud and clear), it makes me feel better! 🙂

    I feel like that bird when I have to get up early.

  3. That’s one early bird who doesn’t look impressed at having nothing for breakfast but a worm.
