The Two Percenters

Twitter isn’t real life. In other words, whatever sort of opinions or consensus you see as the mainstream on Twitter does not reflect the actual consensus of normal people who are not cursed with the pathological need to refresh the bird web page all day. . . . A new report from the Pew Research Center seems to, in broad terms, back up the idea that Twitter is not real life in that it does stray from the overall demographic makeup of the United States. . . . Pew’s survey determined that 80 percent of all tweets come from the most active 10 percent of tweeters. Put another way, much of the conversation happening on Twitter comes from about 2 percent of Americans.
Read that again. 2 percent. And, as this piece also points out:
Twitter is not a good place to get a read on popular sentiment about anything really, but it is a great place to get your sentiments echoed and in front of people with large megaphones: politicians, celebrities, cable news hosts.

New Website/Blog Update

Just another reminder to visit the new website and blog. Also, at the bottom of each blog post are social media links allowing readers to quickly share with their own family, friends and followers on their social media sites. If you enjoy what you read, I encourage you to share with others as this will help us to grow and spread our mission to,
"explore and celebrate American history, heritage, heroes, relics, adventure and tradition"
We hope the website, along with our products, will continue to offer a refefreshing and positive alternative to the junk history and negativity which seems so prevalent these days.

We are in the process of developing products that will help advance our mission. It's slow going, but progress is being made.

Thanks to all who have subscribed to the site!
