The White House Social Media Summit sent shockwaves through, err, well, social media today — FULCRUM has noticed that both our Twitter, Facebook, and Periscope presences now appear organic, which is to say, not throttled or rate-limited in any way. We are reaching lots of people again.
FULCRUM did not attend, nor did we seek invitation to, the summit — in order to maintain our impartiality here in Washington. We did, however, submit complaints when the White House solicited them about a month ago, and those complaints focused on the very platforms we are now seeing the most amazing growth from.
It’s almost as if we have been restored to our original following audiences, “with interest paid” on top of that. Truly great to be back, and the ETH.video multistream saw all-time high viewer and chat numbers last night. The next full show is tonight @ 6pm EST on ETH.video. I’m very satisfied, which is a weird feeling for someone as type A as I am. The Trumps might be everything we thought they were on Inauguration Day, and then some. They’re not telling us how to live. They’re just leading a country that went astray for a little while, perhaps (see “The Island”). Leading it back to greatness, in a hurry.
