Possible 2016 Presidential Candidate Spends $14,000 on Twitter Ads
Alda Telles's insight:

Former US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton has included Twitter as a big part of his political advertising.

The Republican politician, who is apparently considering a 2016 Presidential bid, has targeted numerous keywords on Twitter to display his message.

The Washington Post documented these ads, showing that Bolton’s promoted tweets – including attack ads on Obama’s foreign policy – pop up when users search for terms like “Benghazi,” “politics,” and “GOP.”

Alda Telles's insight:

This is the end of the big budget advertising and marketing campaigns. We will have to dip into the tool box and broadcast now and again, but it is no longer ‘SOS’ (Send Out Stuff)."

Instead, he stated, it is about 'OASIS' - press officers thinking about objective, audience, strategy, implementation and scoring.

LPM Comunicação SA's curator insight, October 1, 2013 6:30 PM
Press officers should be content producers: "You should not start with three pages of A4, but a tweet, an infographic or a video. If you are writing more than 200 words on any subject, you’re probably in the wrong place."

The triumph of Twitter

The triumph of Twitter | Political Communication | Scoop.it
With Twitter becoming a driving force in politics, snark and shallow scoops are undermining the media’s campaign coverage, study says
Alda Telles's insight:

Although only a tiny fraction of voters are on Twitter, most of the news stories written about candidates incubate in conversations that begin as tweets.

“Its ability to shape conventional wisdom this cycle was remarkable,” said Hamby. “It was the first thing we all looked at as reporters every morning and before bed. It’s the first thing the Obama and Romney campaigns did, where they went to spar and engage.”

Algerie : Le Petit Journal de Canal+ démasque le montage de Canal Algerie & Bouteflika - YouTube

Alda Telles's insight:

Un Abdelaziz Bouteflika en forme: c'est ce qu'a voulu montrer la télévision algérienne Canal Algérie lors d'une rencontre entre le président algérien et le Premier ministre français Jean-Marc Ayrault.

Mais le Petit Journal de Canal + s'en est mêlé en diffusant une vidéo de la même séquence: Bouteflika y paraît faible, fatigué. Pour rendre la scène plus dynamique, la télévision algérienne a en fait repris en boucle, en utilisant différents angles, trois gestes de la main esquissés par le chef de l'Etat algérien. "Magie du montage", ironise Yann Barthès, présentateur de l'émission.
Victime d'un AVC en avril dernier, Abdelaziz Bouteflika a été hospitalisé pendant trois mois à Paris. De retour à Alger, son état de sa santé et le manque de transparence l'entourant ont été au centre de questions sur sa capacité à poursuivre son mandat.

Finalement, à 76 ans, Bouteflika a été désigné par son parti, le Front de Libération National (FLN), pour briguer un quatrième mandat présidentiel en 2014.

How Twitter has changed politics — and political journalism

How Twitter has changed politics — and political journalism | Political Communication | Scoop.it
Answer: A lot.
Alda Telles's insight:

Twitter is reshaping the way in which politics is practiced and covered. The changes, which are still in process, are profound — in the way that politicians interact (or don’t) with reporters, the life cycle of news cycles and how the general public gets (or doesn’t) its information.

The U.S. response to the editorial has been cynical, but from a communications perspective, the piece is very instructive. Putin and his PR handlers have done several things that can be very effective when making a case in public.
