    Occasionally I will reply pointedly to a tweet from a public figure or organization. Might have been once or twice I've sent a pointed reply back to a non-celebrity wing nut. They never replied. Love a good argument but realize that minds are not changed by twitter or facebook battles. Probably just make the non-political more proud to be non-political.  Love twitter though because it is like having a witty wire service that you follow. Politically it can be effective to influencing in public opinion. The night of Ryan's convention speech I joined in trying to get the #lyinryan hashtag going. The media does seem to pick up on what is trending on twitter.

      and I don't get into twitter wars with them. If a right wing troll starts commenting I ignore them. If they persist, I block them. Simple.

      An eye for an eye and the whole world will be blind.
