Mommy, What Is Twitter?

Mommy, What is Twitter?I received this email this week:

Hey Ron, love the podcast and my favorite segments are A Moment in Time and the OTR commercials.  I can’t get enough history and both of those really hit home reminding us what life was like before social media swallowed us whole. People could react to what was happening in their own homes but really had to think about what they would do or say about it. Letters to the editor had to be well thought out and concise in order to get into print, but your voice was heard. Here is to simpler times and to you for reminding us of our past. – Brian Kano from Austin, Texas

I love how you think Brian. You hit the nail on the head as to why I play the old stuff. We are good people, but we have become lost in how we communicate with each other. I wonder what our president’s approval rate would have been in the 1940s. Twitter did not exist back and then, and the Russians were one of our allies. Just a random thought from your friendly podcaster.

Thank you for your great comment, Brian, I do appreciate it.
