on May 4th Deidre De Burca put out a twitter message where she said:
You’ll soon be seeing my environmentally friendly election posters from sustainable, Irish forests. http://tinyurl.com/dmjcjq
I responded to Deidre’s tweet:
@deirdredeburca can you send some pics of the poster deidre
what happened then was this [courtesy of irish election]:
…. a ‘conversation’ between the Green Party’s Twitter Account and Peter Donegan. It’s was about Senator Deirdre de Burca and the way she might tweet at you . It’s all one way traffic and no replies to those who ask question or look for info and well the Green Party tweeter defended Deirdre and compared her to Barack Obama’s twitter account. Oh dear. Stephen Spillane rounds up the conversation for our consumption. That’s the thing with social networks – it’s meant to be a conversation – not a megaphone!
But what happened was De Burca came back with this blog post
Funny thing is there is no mention of me at all…. and I am still none the wiser about Deidre’s super dooper election posters….
With that in mind Deidre does note that she
would need a full team of staff to look after my electronic communication alone in order to be able to respond to everything I receive
Funny thing is she has 286 followers. Barack Obama has 1,086,275.
Secondly Eoin Ryan MEP has 414 followers, he spoke with me yesterday. I don’t get it at all maybe I’ll ask young Laura Mc Gonigle who really does know how to use online media to great advantage or you might say takes the time to deal with those who choose to communicate with her in that manner.
What was my original query that nobody answered… ?
it’s seems I’m not the only one wondering what on earth The Green Party are doing when it comes to online medium [click here]. This time it is [again without any doubt] just rude.
Can you imagine if I spoke like this about anyone? Would you want to work with me…..? more to the point, would you vote for me?
the green party and deidre de burca & her/ their thoughts on….. genetically modified food…- click here hmmm…….?
