Social media renders rapid judgment on debate
The AP’s take on things from a new media perspective. Obama looked as goofy as Big Bird last night and Lehrer didn’t distingush himself. No wonder they want to make it all about a costumed PBS character.
Big Bird is endangered. Jim Lehrer lost control. And Mitt Romney crushed President Barack Obama.
Those were the judgments rendered across Twitter and Facebook Wednesday during the first debate of the 2012 presidential contest. While millions turned on their televisions to watch the 90-minute showdown, a smaller but highly engaged subset took to social networks to discuss and score the debate as it unspooled in real time.
