watching lots of angry FB emojis & familiar lines in this speech, but can you hear/see the trump campaign shakeup? I can #TrumpinATX

@juliachanb @BGPublic right. But is the solution to that problem outsourcing community convos entirely? That's the part I challenge

Aug 23, 2016

@BGPublic @juliachanb yes and no. PP audience and the content that frames those convos very different from mainstream l daily news

Aug 23, 2016

@BGPublic @juliachanb yes, there are other ways, but conversation is one of the best ways to gather/build community. Why give that up?
