. . . But people have been organizing and mobilizing long before the advent of social media.

I was just out for a walk a few hours ago and a small caravan of cars was riding through the neighborhood. The lead car had a "Vote For Wes Moore"* sign stretched across the hood. They were honking their horns and waving. I gave them a smile and a thumbs up and waved back.

If Twitter melts into Right-Wing goo, people will find other ways to communicate.
