Many of you asked… and now we can official confirm: the guys at BloggersUnite.org have no interest in politics, but in one thing only… allowing the power of bloggers and social media to come together.
“..citizens no longer use CNN or local TV as their news sources ” T. Berkman, BloggersUnite.org”
Proof of that is SA4Mayor.com with now about 18,000 page views a month in only 4 short weeks. And so, the growing influence of Social Media has prompted Mayoral candidates to reach out and “Twitt someone” or Blog for that matter.
Recently, the Julian Castro campaign announced a Bloggers for Castro and the DeBerry-Mejia camp soon followed with a Twitter Day. At least one of the candidates is using a local site to recruit their on-line troops, and when the invitation went out, many of our bloggers and social media gurus couldn’t help but wonder if this was some kind of an endorsement. So SA4Mayor.com took it to task, and we catch up with Tony Berkman, CEO of BloggersUnite.org who explains his site is neutral and open to all parties. And in our interview he extends an invitation to other candidates.
