RUSH: The Left Has Co-Opted Twitter Like They Have Co-Opted ‘Paid-For’ Protest Marches

RUSH: Have you looked at Twitter’s stock price? Even with the Trumpster tweeting all day, they still can’t monetize it. Have you seen their stock price? This is one of the most amazing things, when you talk about strict business. When you look at the supposed number of users, that place ought to be dwarfing Amazon. Well, not Amazon. They ought to be up there with Google in terms of what they ought to be able to sell advertising-wise. But they can’t monetize it. The founder was a guy named Jack Dorsey.

As they do with all founders, they got him out of there, and they bring in some corporatist-thinking guy to be the CEO. He runs it into the ground and they bring the founder back trying to save it, because Steve Jobs did when he came back and saved Apple. But nobody else has been able to pull that off. But he’s back there with some of the original guys, and they just continue to beat their head against the wall. And I am convinced… Well, I know in many cases that 10 people on Twitter working together using a couple algorithms can make themselves appear to be tens of thousands of people.

I think the left has co-opted Twitter like they have co-opted the paid-for protest march. And I don’t believe half of what’s on Twitter, in terms of the numbers, the strength and so forth. If it were the case, if Twitter were actually America, Trump could have never been elected, because all of Twitter is all liberal, all the time — with a couple little sectors over here with conservatives scratching each other’s backs now and then.

But outside of that, you get the impression that twitter is America, and I resent that. Twitter is not. “Twitter is blowing up! Twitter is this. Twitter had a fit with Tiger Woods’ mug shot.” Oh, that was a… Twitter went overboard with Tiger Woods’ mug shot. It meant… (interruption) I don’t know if it was Photoshopped, but when they say “Twitter went nuts,” it means, “America is overflowing with rage.” I just don’t buy that.
