I agree the negatives seemingly outweigh the positives because the positives are so egregious. These politicians are all about themselves, their small time ideologies, their few followers/worshipers and what’s in it for them. We are going to have to try to pick the evil that will do the people the least amount of harm.
As for Twitter, it does more harm than good in my opinion. It’s not a platform to have civil engagement. Any politician using it to engage constituents seriously usually gets in trouble. Social media is going to be the death of young politicians. Responding without thinking things out is dangerous.
