Mining Twitter for Stupid Leftist Comments

The Left has, largely, abandoned Blogs. Those that continue are what you might call Institutional Blogs - those controlled by organizations/Old Media.

Where the Left lives is in the limited-text, largely graphic/meme New Media - Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, etc. Where some of need to spend time is on those sites, both looking for Stupid Leftist Comments/Statements to analyze (Boy! There's a LOT!), but also to use to grow our audience, through SHORT statements/memes summarizing our thoughts, with links for those ready to tackle the larger argument.

Also, pictures, video, and some audio. That, I think, is the way to hook our new audience.

Any ideas or rebuttals?

I started on twitter and was getting HUGE hits. One tweet had 80,000 impressions. Then I noticed that the same sorts of tweets would get a few dozen impressions.

For the most part, unless you have big name recognition (James Woods) it's tough to not be a leftist on Twitter.

It was driving (for a while) my blog growth. Now? Not at all.

It's a good way to talk to other people on specific interests and non-leftists, but that's about it.
