Sadiq Spamming for Votes With Fake Personal Tweets

Spamming fake Twitter DM (direct message) notifications into Labour members inboxes isn’t going to help the little shyster gain authenticity. It will just irritate people. They do say if you can fake authenticity, you have it made. Not sure it is working in Sadiq’s case…

Twitter Brain: Mensch Analysed

TWITTER-BRAIN

Guido has heard it said many times that Louise Mensch needs analysis and today we have analysed her Twitter account. Currently she is tweeting pretty incessantly about Tim Hunt, the professor hounded out of public life for making a few humorous remarks about women in science. The twitterati’s feminazi wing took exception and the Nobel prize winning scientist was ruined. Louise has documented the case for the defence in detail on her own website

Anyone who follows Louise will know that she is tweeting about it a lot. By “a lot” Guido means continuously. Incessantly. Relentlessly. Non-stop. Around the clock. On average currently Louise is tweeting 280 times a day, about once every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day…

In comparison Guido tweeted 33 times a day on average in June, well when we say “Guido” we mean one of the 4 Guido staff writers and of course about a third of those tweets are automated. Here is the analysis of @LouiseMensch for last month:

Let’s hope Professor Hunt is grateful for her campaign on his behalf. Louise – consider this an intervention – put the iPhone down…

Brat Pack Slap Back: Owned Jones v Rob Lowe

So, About Last Night

Rob Lowe, undoubtedly the finest actor of this or indeed any other generation, met Youngblood Owen Jones:

In a marked admission of defeat, Owned Jones tried to shade it back with a lame “haha”.

Looks like he got burned by St. Elmo’s Fire

Government Approves Twitter Analysis Snake Oil

twitter sentiment

The government is poised to waste taxpayers money following the Cabinet Office’s approval of an “automated sentiment analysis” service that promises to help government departments find out what people are talking about online. Precise Media Monitoring claims to use “advanced text analytics” to quickly get “an idea of sentiment towards a subject“.

As Guido has pointed out before, current sentiment analysis software simply isn’t up to the job and anyone claiming they can provide it is a social media BS artist.  Any department who pays Precise Media Monitoring instead of using Tweetdeck (free) should prepare themselves for some rather negative sentiment…

Twitter Bitch Fight of the Week: Caitlin Moran v News UK

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
