Could Twitter Create the Next Dictator?

I know that title sounds incredibly superficial and misleading and exaggerated for comic effect, but hear me out.

Sure, Twitter is this great social forum to interact with other people, share ideas, and maybe, God forbid, learn. But let’s face it: Twitter’s also a great place to give you quite the inflated ego.

Dictators and tweeters both have “followers,” both get their message directly out to the masses instead of having to go through the wicked, biased media, and both get emotionally angsty if no one favorites or shares what they’ve said with others.

Mark my words, Twitter will create the next dangerous dictator.

Or it’s just a Tuesday and I have nothing more interesting to say.
