Some people should be kept away from social media for their own protection. The President is one of those and so is this fellow. Their postings are egocentric, frequently false and just plain dumb. Rather than building a following, they appeal to a narrow class of readers, and they are mocked by the majority. Already, Trump's tweets have been used against his position on Syrian immigrants in court. True to form, neither Trump nor Shkreli seem to be aware of the damage they are doing to themselves. They persist. If they were to listen to communications counsel, they would be told to hang up their twitter handles and stay quiet. But, they don't hear. Their over-confidence gets in the way. So, we watch them sink themselves day by day and we wonder how they will respond to their ultimate fates.
