Politico has discovered that instead of being a model citizen by helping "Missouri officials" to "calm" the populace in Ferguson
social networks like Twitter highlight tensions in the moment rather than calm them, with tweets and photos detailing the scene as things unfold in real time.
Twitter’s quick-share, short-form environment isn’t designed for lengthy debate or nuanced conversations.
And as a result:
That reality—apparent to anyone who has tried to win an Internet argument—contrasts with the kind of civil understanding that Missouri officials have sought to establish over the last week.
So, yeah, if it weren't for Twitter, authorities in Ferguson would totally have things under control, because without Twitter nobody would be outraged about a police officer facing no accountability after shooting an unarmed teenager.
Of course, that's not true, but even if it were, why on Earth does Politico think it would be a problem?
Texas Gov. Rick Perry signaled Thursday that he would be open to sending U. S. combat forces to Iraq to fight the deadly Islamic state after its attacks on a Christian minority and the beheading of an American journalist.
The potential 2016 presidential candidate also raised the prospect of members of the Islamic state crossing the U.
In the week since he was indicted for abuse of power and public coercion, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and his supporters have insisted the charges against the Republican governor are politically motivated.
The indictments stem from Perry's veto last year of $7.5 million in funding for the unit responsible for investigating public corruption in Texas.
The Public Integrity Unit is part of the Travis County district attorney's office, which is headed by a Democrat, District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg.
 county government officials made up some of the difference to keep the office running.
Perry's veto came as the ethics unit was investigating alleged corruption involving one of the governor's key projects, a $3 billion taxpayer-supported effort to find a cure for cancer.
The Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, known as CPRIT, quickly unraveled following revelations that some lucrative contracts were awarded without proper scrutiny and oversight.
On Thursday, Perry's lawyers produced an affidavit from a former Public Integrity Unit investigator, Chris Walling, who stated that neither Perry nor anyone in the governor's office was a target of that investigation.
 the case against Perry wouldn't have reached a grand jury had it not been for Republican Judge Bert Richardson, who assigned a special prosecutor, Michael McCrum, to investigate the original complaint filed by a left-leaning group.
