Couldn't he have been trying to respond to someone?
I follow him on FaceBook and his feed all weekend made sense, though I realize it's not the same as Twitter.
Sorry, but I like the guy. He was truly moderate, he didn't spew hate or homophobia while in office. He was dumped for no good reason and would have helped modernize and make more moderate the repuklican party.
Having worked with Liz Warren for a short time, I detest her. She's a megalomaniac, a liar, and feels entitled. You can flame me for it but not every Democrat is a good person. Brown was a good guy. With faults of course, but he deserved more of a chance.
And, of course, you have so much credibility, R21.
R21: Gotta disagree. Brown and Warren each demonstrated their respective characters during campaign season. She was combative as a challenger but in terms of content, she kept it on the issues; whereas he tried to rile up his base into making fun of her. Kept calling her "PROFESSOR Warren" pointedly during debates, etc.
He was freakin' useless as a Senator and did nothing except kept one more seat from staying in Democrats' hands. If he had defeated a wingnut in Alabama, replacing extremism with moderation, then great - that would back up your argument. But he was holding Teddy Kennedy's seat. In Massachusetts. That is not a switch any Democrat should want. IN terms of principles and the issues at hand, Liz Warren is a far more worthy and natural successor to Kennedy's voting record - and to the wishes of his constituents.
Brown was a race-baiting cunt. That whole Native American episode was ugly, and a big part of why he ultimately lost.
Fuck off, freeper at R21.
Brown got a lot of votes simply because he was photogenic. He's a phony, asshole that will sellout his voters, that's why he didn't get reelected.
He just tweeted "Sorry. Fantastia had my phone."
I suspect a distraction tactic aka The Naked-Yoder.
What is the bigger BAD news surrounding Brown that his people are trying to divert us from?
Freeper at 21, read the damned story before you respond and make yourself look like a fool.
He sent three different "whatever"s to three different critics.
1) This response is childish and it says nothing. It calls more attention to Brown's lack of intelligence than "Whatever" he was responding to. he literally had no logical response.
2) Twitter is a public form. Anything a public servant puts on it is up for critique, discussion and debate. Especially if it looks like an inane waste of tax-payer time and money.
Yes, r29... It's the republican "look over there"! Tactic, you could be on to something.
Yes, we'll all be sure to take the word of a "Democrat" who loves Scott Brown and hates Elizabeth Warren. Ha ha, ok, winky-wink, "Democrat".
[quote]Am I the only one who finds it strange when politicians spend large amounts of time on Twitter?
Drunk? Does that mean he'll let a gay man suck his cock?
R21 obviously doesn't realize that Scott Brown is against gay marriage.
Can someone explain to me what bqwhatever even means and why it is scandalous?
R36, presumably it was a careless misspelling.
I was on Twitter when the whole thing went down the other night. Brown got into an argument with Zach Green, who is a cute Jewish liberal Democrat that runs multiple Twitter feeds for left-leaning groups. I'm one of his followers and have chatted with him in the past.
Zach was criticizing Brown for something and Brown sort of snapped and sent back a series of misspelled Tweets to Zach.
It's just a typo, I guess he was trying to say whatever. Either way, he needs a BlackBerry with a keyboard. People can't fucking type on those virtual touchpads. They suck!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
