Jeremy Corbyn broke the internet, but only because his digital manifesto was an epic fail – Telegraph.co.uk
It seems obvious to point all ofÂ this out in 2016, but clearly it is necessary.
Even online,Â the majority of the electorateÂ still get their information from traditional media outletsÂ and do not trust social media.Â These are the people Corbyn needs to convince, not his devoted mob of followers.
Twitter, and to some extent Facebook, is a world of “ists”Â – journalists, extremists, feminists, socialists, trotskyists – who scour the platform for opinions that match theirs,Â attacking and intimidating those that donât.Â
Those profiles with the darling Twibbons are the trolls who send abusiveÂ death threats and shut down the debate, the people Corbyn refuses to condemn.
