That may be a reflection of the amount of negative and attack politics that us prevalent.



Twitter is dominated by media reports, journalist comment and reactions to those. Labour dominates the activity but has the poorer ‘pulse’.

    I don’t have either. With Twitters followers been the media, politicians primarily thats a turn off. For Facebook the wife has an account. Was complaining about the increase in political crap so I told her to turn off the IPad for two weeks and watch TV.
    Man that was a great decision to not use TV for political broadcasts.
    Ignore the News of course.

    The problem is that facebook is a social platform and you loose a few “friends” if you are the wrong side of the fence.
    What about You Tube? Youtube affects a broader ideology. EG do Trump supporters vote National (the pro-immigration party)?
