Recording ‘History’ on Social Media 

How History is recorded on Social Media, with amazing status messages, tweets and blogs as parallel running commentary shaping the contours of discourse. These thoughts are rants, erudite retorts and simply an affirmative soundboard. The Election Season is one major example such active civic engagement. Influencers on social media shape the direction of debate, but there is a disconnect between real democracy on the ground and I do not mean the seminar set. 
Where are these thoughts in the landscape of the past? Are these the unwritten histories, as we do not know where the data lands up. The graveyard of the cache.
