Just for the record… this is NOT a partisan post. It is merely an observation of a social media phenomenon. It does not indicate my political preference in any way.
The speed of social media continues to impress and awe me.
During the debate, in an effort to express his support for women, Republican candidate Mitt Romney used an awkward phrase. He said he knew "binders full of women." Here, you can watch it yourself. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3Q7hONqQBk[/youtube]
Before the debate had ended, the following new social media accounts had been opened:
Romney's Binders Full of Women – Facebook page – 41,052 Likes
Binders Full of Women – Facebook group – 298 members
RomneysBinder – Twitter account – 3,167 followers
Binders full 'o women – Tumblr page
Let's face it… binders are the new Big Bird.
