Republicans are notoriously bad with technology. From deleting tweets that contradict a current position, and not realizing that the internet is forever, to their entire campaign tracker failing, they simply cannot grasp the 21st century.
South Carolina governor, Nikki Haley, is another casualty in the Republican struggle with technology. Haley, or a staffer, posted this photo on Instagram that touted a new education bill for South Carolina:
When posting the message, Team Haley also decided to share the message on Twitter. What was the problem? The message was clearly longer than Twitter’s 140 character limit so the message was cut off mid-sentence. This is what followers on Twitter saw:
Ironically, there was some unintentional truth in the tweet. The funneling of public tax-dollars into charter schools harms students in lower and middle-class families by taking away public education funds.
The tweet was ultimately deleted after several hours, but not before being broadcast across the internet. When will they learn?
