Social Media and Revolution

I agree with both.  Social Media isn’t absolutely needed, but it sure does spread the word fast.  Had there been twitter, texting and other fast forms of communication back then, things could have changed faster.  

I think technology matters a LOT when it comes to politics.  I remember being my sons age (12) and not having nearly as much information he as when it comes to politics.  He had so many facts and questions during the elections.  Technology has made this information easily available to EVERYONE.   I just don’t remember being that into elections when I was his age, and I have to assume it’s b/c the info wasn’t as readily available. 

There are potential dark sides to everything when in the wrong hands.
