    Default David Cochrane "juvenile and immature" - Fianna Fail

    Earlier today OgraFF posted a message out on Twitter....

    Now, I follow Ogra on Twitter, I'm not a member, but I'm interested in all things political. However, Ogra would be mistaken in thinking all their followers are members or even supporters.

    This error on the part of Ogra has form, anyone who's subscribed to Fianna Fail's mailing list from their website will be used to occasional emails beginning with "Dear Supporter". I'm interested in what Fianna Fail say, but I'm neither a supporter nor a member.

    So, i retweeted the message by Ogra, mainly to point out the bad use of the medium, in that it was an error to think every follower is an Ogra member.

    I didn't put it that eloquently, mind...

    I got a missed call and voicemail from someone in the Fianna Fail press office asking me to get back to them, which I did. The person I spoke to thanked me for getting back to him and then said my tweet had been brought to their attention and they'd been asked to get in touch to let me know they thought my tweet was.

    I'll be putting "juvenile and immature" on my business cards, with full credit to the Fianna Fail press office.

    Incidentally, I did ask if FF would put P.ie back on their press lists but they declined to comment.

    A tad sensitive after the drumming they have endured over the last week, first response, point fingers, I guess we know who is being immature ...

    Don't juvenile and immature mean the same thing.
    It's not very eloquent from them.
    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you
    down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    I thought the whole point of 'Ogra anything' was that you had to be juvenile and immature to be a member? Otherwise, why bother?...

    FF Media Monitoring unit is obviously in fear of the Tweetyverse right now

    If FF hates you, then I'll buy you pints as well. Their statement is odd - displays that they are the people that are really juvenile and immature.

    No, that's the point of Young Fine Gael.

    Well, it was. They obv want to get a survey from their membership and you're encouraging people to screw it up. Do you not think that's a bit immature?
