    Sometimes I wonder why do politicians need social media accounts? It's kind of dangerous and might make them look bad if they slipped their tongues. Yes, I know that there's a team to manage a big-named politician account. But still, you can screw yourself up so easily with one of these. Like that article as one example.

    Politicians like other celebrity types already self censor themselves to the point of being plastic anyway. It doesn't help the entire world population is mentally conditioned to jump at someone's throat for a simple slip up. Far from saying people can't criticize a person, but it doesn't really change said person. It just makes their behavior hidden from public.
