BREAKING: It’s Social Media Day In Burlington, Which Means That VDB Gets Beat Up By Pugnacious Twitterers

by Philip Baruth

Not sure if you’re one of those folks with free time in the middle of the day, but it is Social Media Day here in Burlington, and there’s this if you’re able: a 1:30 panel discussion about politics and social media and the intriguing fusion thereof, featuring super-Councilor Ed Adrian and uber-Rep. Jason Lorber and of course VDB.

Will we be able to get a word in edgewise? No.

But the truth is that Councilor Adrian has been skewering me via Twitter for anemic blogging all morning long, and it’ll be great fun just trying to make him trip over his words with carefully timed eye-rolls and eyebrow shrugs.

And Lorber is a professional comic. So you needn’t fear boredom. And there’s just an outside chance that one of us might say something remotely interesting and/or useful about the capacity of social media to enhance the Democratic process.

Or, you know, not. Still, be good to see you there. That’s 1:30 pm, at Office Squared, 106 Main Street, beautiful downtown Burlington.
