Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter provide a means to communicate directly to voters bypassing a self-admittedly biased media. If a politician were told there is a way to reach thousands of people with an unadulterated message in a person’s home without the need to knock on a door or stand before TV cameras, he would eagerly ask how to do it. That’s social media.
