Ever had that one idea. It's a great idea. Almost epic! Of course, the next morning you wake up and think - wow, that was a really, really bad idea - next time, probably not going to challenge the bikers at the biker bar to a fight.
This is probably what Ron Paul is thinking this morning after the following was posted on his twitter account:
@JonHuntsman we found your one Iowa voter, he's in Linn precinct 5 you might want to call him and say thanks
Now, I think that is funny - for someone probably not running for President.
This tweet is an example of what probably seems like a good idea at the time, but when looking back at it, probably isn't going to look as good the next day.
This is a problem with Twitter in that you can post your thoughts instantly without thinking about it. As I've noted before, that can be a problem.
Communication is vitally important to a political campaign. Will this derail the Paul campaign? Who knows. What we can all learn though is, we have to be careful when we use Twitter - especially if we are running for President!
