I still do think we have a tech savvy administration (they're still in the right places), but I do think you're completely right. A tweet from an offical government profile would be just as signifcant as the Press Secretary making it know to traditional media outlets that everything was truly okay. Still though, not everyone is on Social Media, and that's something that we forget over and over. Maybe traditional media was the best route for this particular happening because there was no significant danger involved- the White House, and the President were fine.
With something like the Boston bombings, I could see how updates via social media would be important. There was alot of danger, and a lot happening in that situation. There was no truth to the hacking news, so maybe the WH didn't think it was absolutely necessary to respond via social media? We'll probably never know.
Thanks, Kent! I appreciate the article love! Thank you!
