Barack Obama on Social Media
Speaking to a crowd in April, Obama credits social media for how he won so many states because volunteers formed their own organizations ahead of his staff. “Ordinary people being empowered politically…It takes power away from the PACS and lobbyists”. He says it has applications for government as well.
Obama’s campaign has used social media better than any other campaign to date. His followers and campaign have take social media way past where Howard Dean left off.
