Twitter is more useful than Reddit, or any other online place for political discussion. It is useful for who is watching and it is useful because brands are built there. It is also useful for undermining or damaging brands.

It is no good transposing outdated ideologies on power structures which do not correspond, old notions of class on a society that has moved past such facile distinctions.

One of the benefits of being part of a post no logo generation is that this sunk in while domestic politics became a pass-time for rich boys and girl,s and the effect of their policies and words became political education for those outside their class.
