One of the fun things about being a member of UKIP is the world of social media. If a member spends their every waking moment tweeting incredibly stupid things they then have to delete it almost immediately.
However, there’s still a chance that someone from the Daily Mail has already screen grabbed it. The offending tweet is then reprinted in the paper and an awful lot of people get offended by the tweet in question.
Now UKIP party leader Nigel Farage has had enough of that unruly mess. He’s tired of paying scores of retarded teens to wade through his party members tweets about gay marriage, women priests, immigration reform, human rights protests in Ramsgate, people setting themselves on fire in Hartlepool, breast feeding at Claridges and tranny attention seekers kissing each other in public.
No. Social media is not fun if you’re the only one enjoying it. That’s why both Nigel and UKIP have withdrawn their digital stamp of approval from all tweets which bear the party logo.
Here’s snippet from their constitution;
“Party members shall refrain from using the Ukip logo in terms of their online postings, including avatars, unless they have express written consent to do so from the party leader, the party chairman, the party secretary, the general secretary, the party director, the regional chairman or regional organiser for their region”.
Politicians all seem to think that Twitter is best left to diplomats and not a party’s incoherent social media army. Herein lies the fundamental flaw in all political marketing on social media. For some reason their soul selling social media outlets don’t feature pictures of hot women. That’s a game changer right there. You can’t win an election without a cleavage.
It’s cute that politicos think their earnest twitterings are enough. But it’s like men who think that growing a beard will get them laid. Wake me Nigel when you’ve got some Brazilian supermodels in the mix. See Above.
