Masters of the Social Media?

The Democrats have been lauded as being on top of their social media usage when compared to the Republicans.  However, I will say that they generally have ended up opening doors for online mocking (one of our specialties) by poor choices – think: #Forward or #BettingOnAmerica or #QuestionsThatStumpObama.  Well, now we have the newly minted Secretary of State, John Kerry who announced that he will be much more active on Twitter than his predecessor.  In fact, he said that people will know that it is the Secretary of State himself when the tweet is signed with his initials: JK.  Those who see the issue are snickering already.  Those that don’t might not realize that the current shorthand “JK” translates to “just kidding”.  Consider some of the recent State Department efforts had they been tweeted out by the new Secretary of State:

  • @StateDept Resetting our relationship with #Russia – JK
  • @StateDept Answering questions about the tragedy in #Benghazi – JK
  • @StateDept We’re all confident for the Summer of Recovery 2013 – JK

You get the point.  Mocking shall ensue.

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
