Join Lauren Edmond’s Call for Change campaign in the 2016 presidential election!
|Couric:||Senator Edmond, can you tell us about your recent decision to join the Twitter network?|
|Edmond:||Absolutely, Katie. It is clear that social media has accumulated much popularity and influence in the past decade, as evident in its modern political role. Several politicians, including President Barack Obama, tweet several times daily in order to update their followers on recent news or reformations in ideas or policies. I joined Twitter to do the same.|
|Couric:||And who are you looking to target with your tweets?|
|Edmond:||I'm hoping to capture the attention of the American teenagers that already spend quite a bit of time on the Internet. It seems to have come to a time in which the primary form of communication with American adolescents is through social media, however several of my followers may also come from fellow politicians or aspiring politicians. Who knows? I'm just hoping people click the follow button to hear what I have to say!|
|Couric:||Well, I can certainly understand that! Thanks for your time, Senator.|
|Edmond:||Thank you for having me, Katie. Always a pleasure.|
Senator Lauren Edmond
