Politico the Washington super-blog reports that on the sixth floor of an office building in Chicago there’re ‘150 techies’ working night and day to reelect President Obama by doing ‘data mining’ which may sound as stimulating as watching paint dry but consider two facts:
President Obama now has 27 million ‘Facebook Followers’ (to Mitt Romney’s 1.8 million).
And the President has 16 million ‘Twitter Followers’ (to Governor Romney’s 500,000).
Think about that a moment: There’re 27 million people on Facebook following President Obama’s every word, everyday, and talking to them costs the President’s campaign less than buying one ad on the news on WRAL.
