The Tweet Story

At some point about a month ago....I sat and watched some forum about a day after the election, and this odd thing got brought up on Hillary Clinton and the use of the social media devices.  It's been on my mind for the past month.

For a comment to appear on Hillary's Tweet was brought up that it was a committee of fifteen individuals within the campaign who would sit.....analyze the suggested Tweet....and vote on whether the Tweet would be allowed.   At some point, about two minutes later in the conversation, they then shifted to Trump.  A Tweet by Trump required basically Trump and Bannon to agree on it.  That's it.  They didn't say how long this discussion would be.....but I'm guessing less than two minutes.

You can imagine the Hillary meeting....occurring once a day when all fifteen people can be in a room and they discuss the 140-character length of the comment that Hillary's handlers want to say.  There might be six different variations put up on this one topic.  So these guys would sit there and discuss option one, option two, option three, etc.  You could waste an entire hour on just two simple Tweets.

Trump?  He probably had two variations of the Tweet suggested by his PR guys, and he had his favorite in his mind.  Bannon might say or suggest something, and that would lead to the conclusion.

The thing about this.....the more people you involve in a process....the more angles that develop and the more divisions that start to exist.  You simply are begging for a team that is arguing more than uniting.
