Did social media actually predict the outcome of the election? As Twitter saw it Obama was the clear winner. This wasn’t the complete truth but the outcome was still the same.

This kind of tactic was key in gaining support for the election. This is a great thing to implement into mine and anyone’s social media outlets. For my own use I’m setting up a Twitter account for my friends ski company. To gain followers and help bring in the dough it’s crucial to know how to form their Twitter account to people’s tastes. And if you can get feed back from their followers it could make or break a social media outlet.
