Apparently, someone in the White House came up with the idea of calling on the public to send in their Fourth of July celebration selfies based on what’s done during professional baseball games, where people put selfies on Twitter with a certain hashtag, (in San Diego, it’s #FriarFaithful) and then either see them retweeted by the sports organization to its huge followership and/or projected on one of the giant stadium screens during a live game. These things are fun, and everybody does them, I certainly have.
In Biden’s case, they’re less fun based on two realities — one is that Biden is going to use them to reap political hay for himself and his party, while his social media big tech allies are likely to use them for data-mining purposes. No thanks.
Can you imagine an evil schoolmaster issuing an either/or ultimatum and not getting what he wanted, and then asking you after he’s just threatened you for your selfies? Would definitely look creepy.
