I am not judging how Jason runs his twitter account but a question should be raised when
it comes to the branding of a company. Should personal politics be brought into the company communication medium? When you are trying to set an image of a company into a market is it best to keep neutral and just share information with your followers?
I have a feeling Jason and SocialMedian is putting off some users because of the political opinion of one of the creators using Twitter. When you are building a brand for your company is it best to leave personal opinions on the wayside?
This is a great question when it comes to branding a new startup. The personality of a company is directly related to the creators but how far can you go?
