how does one get to be a 'top tweeting' mouthpiece like the all-knowing bram cohen anyway? is it just based on followers?

http://mobile.twitter.com/bramcohen

bramcohen Will the Bitcoin fiasco make Libertarians realize they know diddly about economics? No, it will not.
bramcohen Everybody wondering what Bitcoin fiasco I'm talking about: Don't worry, you'll know soon enough.

that's all i ever see on twitter in that 'top tweet' position. do we even need to play the game and fight this? should we bother getting top tweeters and other nonsense to spew negative vitriol?

what a show...

so there is a game that is being played by people with a strong media presence, like gambling? they get points for siding with the 'right' things and not siding with the 'wrong' things?

i never looked at it that way.

it's pretty sad.

Since the audience somehow only managed to endow itself with short term memory and a short attention span, this is a win-win game: trash any and everything you can with sensationalist headlines, 6 months from now whether it happens or not as you predicted is irrelevant.
