5 reasons to join our live Tweet-Chat during the GOP Debates

Being Latino this evening for a live tweet-chat during the GOP primary debates in Arizona, maybe these reasons will do the trick:

1.  Everybody will be waiting to see who the next inevitable GOP nominee will be.

2.  A healthy Twitter account requires constant care and attention.

3.  Your pizza will take at least an hour to be delivered. (“30 minutes or less” is a vicious lie.)

4.  The new Jersey Shore won’t be on for another day.

5.  It’s what the machines want us to do.

  1. GOP debate in AZ? Oh, how low can they go tonight?

  2. I don’t understand Twitter. What’s even more confusing to me is trying to read a twitter feed with multiple people chiming in. I guess I’m strange that way.
