Social media and TD's

    Simon Harris has come in for a lot of flack for his social media stuff he is well able to defend himself from the 'old farts'

    However what of the argument that using that sort of social media demeans politics in general?

    I am media literate enough to be irritated by photos of TD's with their shirts sleeves rolled up as a metaphor for hard work but TD's have to appeal to a younger generation who don't use traditional media so a lot of this could be a kickback by traditional journalist and traditional media?
