    Default FG TDs get advice on dealing with Twitter criticism.

    According to this link from the Irish Times FG TDs and Senators have been getting advice on how to deal with criticism on Twitter. They have been advised to take criticism on the chin (like Obama, it says?).

    FG Twitter users told to 'take criticism on the chin' in social media protocol - Political News | Irish & International Politics | The Irish Times - Fri, May 10, 2013

    It seems strange to have to advise the people who are running the country on how to deal sensibly with criticism. Naturally, the FG in-house guide couldn't help itself setting a good example for its trainee Twitter users by having a go at FF supporters' comments which they describe as 'impersonal' and 'not only uninspiring but incredibly boring'.

    I know FG are inexperienced at leading and that would explain their naivety in dealing with criticism. Maybe some FG posters on P.ie should learn how to deal better with criticism. A good place to start would be by accepting that FG are not always, every single time, on every single issue, right.

    Maybe Fine Gaels Tommy Morris should have taken that Social media protocol course,instead of taking newspapers.

    One quango for advising them about criticism on Twitter and another for advising them on criticism on Facebook and another one to make a report into whether the quango for advising them on criticism on Myspace, should be wound down over the next 15 years.

    They must not be paying attention to that -there was an FG Dublin City Cllr. on the RTE Radio 1 news at approx. 8.50 -the topic was the disbursement of the Household Tax-who stated ,quit originally I thought, Fianna Fáil bankrupted the country-now that's what I call taking it on the chin!!

    Obama's twitter account ignores all replies, not just criticism. It would be impossible to do otherwise, as his interactions would be constantly updating at lightning speed.

    Sometimes allied to; sure you've got to have hope and aren't things getting better. I wouldn't be surprised if hbap was that FG TD that was on #vinb last night. He was very hopeful that things would improve .

    As long as they're not blowing fortunes of OUR money bringing in all sorts of arsehole 'experts' to teach them how to deal with a bit of online abuse - then I'd prefer this approach to the 'let's close down and/or control the internet' bullsh!t many of them have been banging on about in recent years...

    Education is the key to all of this...

    It should also be happening in our schools with pupils being taught that posting online is the equivalent of publishing in a global newspaper and that they may well have to accept real world consequences for what they do and say online...
