You can see my comment at the end of the article - that’s how it goes with Facebook’s commenting service.
It’s one thing to stew in your justified indignation on a message board; the publisher might gather your comments for one use, the message board service (assuming that it is a third party and the best message board services are) use the might use it for something similar. And they might relay the message to the subjects of the comments — there is no way of knowing if that happens immediately before or after monkeys fly out of their butts.
It’s just not that convenient. One needs to do more. I made a modest effort by tweeting MI Gov. Rick Snyder about this, but no one else has so far. No one has tweeted OH Gov. John Kasich, either.
Tweeting can shame both a target attached to a twitter handle and the offending corporation, so there is that efficiency in that method. It also could suppress the stock price of the offending corporation, at least for a short time. I.M.O, that is the best way to hit corporations. What’s more, it is a damn slight faster than writing either Snyder or Kasich.
Think Progress readers, I have to say that I’m disappointed in you. It’s nothing I asked for myself, I asked it of your for people whose Eighth Amendment rights are being violated. I gave you something simple to do, assuming that you have a twitter account. A couple of you liked the idea. None of you followed through.
