Governor Rick Scott’s team is continuing to fight the press in a Twitter War. The public is following the argument between Scott’s Communications director Brian Burgess and St. Pete Times reporter Michael Bender. But University of Florida Social Media Expert Mike Foley says Scott’s image should not be affected.
“I dont think that this will make a difference one way or another. As long as the tweets remain professional, and they don’t go obscene or profane, or personally attack somebody, I don’t think it will be a problem.”
Foley adds public involvement in political battles is growing as new media outlets are developed.
