Is there something inherently progressive and liberal about online communication sites such as Twitter? Or does it just seem that way?
On her Facebook page recently, Guardian columnist Suzanne Moore said she was tired of Twitter because people mostly just follow those they agree with. They’re not interested in debate.
“You chose who to follow. There is a whole world of deep dark Twitter if you follow those who don’t think like you. But people don’t do that. I would not so much say it’s leftwing as knee jerk. So outrage over a Daily Mail article happens every day, which is frankly daft. Sometimes it can be about a piece published ages ago but no one had noticed till Twitter went berserk.
“Generally though it is the province of the liberal left and for me it has become more and more unthinking and less and less interesting,” Moore told Guardian Technology.
