World’s powerful man cannot escape tweet attacks
President Barack Obama got an official presidential Twitter account this week and is getting the taste of open society that internet claims to encourage. Obama's @POTUS account has been flooded by messages that are racist or that call the president names. There were also death threats.
However, the White House said "offensive and disgusting" posts on the president’s Twitter account are part of an open society. "POTUS" is an acronym for "President of the United States." Obama had more than 2.3 million followers as of Friday.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest feels that despite such posts it is worth the price of engaging the public on issues they care about and that is the reason for launching the account.
At a press conference, Earnest did not answer a question about whether the Secret Service is investigating any Twitter threats. He did seem little bit of weary at the more vulgar tweets. "Those kinds of images and that kind of language is all too common on the internet," he said. "I'm sure some of you guys see that on your Twitter feeds as well."
Earnest noted that it wasn't too different to what the White House Twitter feed already received. But "what we believe is that the president's new Twitter handle is one that can be used to important effect to communicate with the American people and engage the American people. And we're pleased with the early response to it."
About the threatening tweets he said "my guess is that if we spent a lot of time trying to block those kinds of messages, we'd probably spend a lot of time blocking people on the internet. I'll let the Secret Service speak to how they assess these threats and how seriously they need to take them."

The Narendra Modi- Arvind Kejriwal antagonism has always been about two different kinds of populism. While it may not play out in a municipal election, the fact remains that a Kejriwal chastened by Goa and Punjab faces a mid-term test in the municipal elections.
