Binders of women: How the U.S. Presidential Debate played online
Move over Big Bird, these binders are full of women. The offhand phrase from former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney on Tuesday night was one of many topics that pinballed across social networks, as users instantly weighed in on moments from his debate with President Barack Obama.
- BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN: Yes, it now has its own Tumbler, Binders Full of Women and Twitter account, @Romneys-Binder, with more than 13,000 followers before the debate ended. On Facebook, it has nearly 20 different Facebook pages, including one with nearly 136,000 likes. The parodies started pouring in after Romney said that while he was governor of Massachusetts, he sought qualified women for his administration. Romney said he went to “a number of women’s groups and said, `Can you help us find folks,’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”
