* Rhinebeck's Suzanna Hermans notes that primaries are massive voter mobilizers, as in they're mobilized to not vote at all.

* Kingston's Dragon Search staffers update their status by re-tweeting a nonexisting tweet warning you about updating your status.

The Drangoneers, however, do not warn you that re-tweeting your employer's tweets only makes the posts seem more popular in an artificial way. Which reminds me:

* My employer, the Daily Freeman, tweets. A lot.
