Fine Gael Take Social Media To New Lows

I’ve no idea who is “managing” Fine Gael’s web “stuff” during the 2011 Irish general election, but you would really have to ask yourself what they were thinking.

Firstly we had the introduction of new word into the Irish political lexicon – twolicy. Yes – they managed to combine “twitter” and “policy” and came up with this wonderful new term.

What is the “twolicy” all about?

Basically they’re asking all their supporters to follow the Fine Gael candidates and to tweet about them.. They’ve even supplied hashtags and all! Aren’t they um … Oh never mind.

This image kind of sums it up:

Ireland 2.0?

Now they seem to have taken things to a new low with their Valentine’s ploy.

I’m not sure if they’re even taking themselves seriously at this stage.

Cringe.
