PolitiFact: House GOP dominates Internet

in Uncategorized by
Here it is in a recent news release from House Republican leader John Boehner: “PWNED: House GOP Dominates Twitter, YouTube, Social Media in Congress.”

The release said, “The conventional wisdom is being turned upside down as House Republicans demonstrate an unmatched ability to connect with the American people on the Internet’s most popular communities. Once considered the party of online innovation, new research and a host of media reports show that Democrats are largely ignoring some of the most popular social media communities on the Web.”

The bottom line is Boehner is correct when he boasts that the House GOP dominates the Democrats on Twitter, YouTube and other social media in Congress. Read the full PolitiFact ruling here.
