If you are not familiar with social media you might assume that most of the items posted by people surrounding last night’s Vice Presidential debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence would have involved reactions to what they said or how they said it. But, if you are familiar with social media today, you would know that wasn’t true. Many of the meems and posts sent out during the show-down concerned a fly that was buzzing around Pence’s head, and questions about why his left eye looked red and blood shot. Some self appointed experts posted that that could be a sign that Pence has Covid19. Cites like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook can provide a great opportunity for Americans to exchange ideas about the issues facing our country today. Increasingly though those cites seem to be populated by people who just want to berate others who don’t feel as they do, and by people who want to seem clever, cute or silly. That’s the way I see it.
