My buddy Rafi posts on his new blog Empathetics a very insightful commentary on how different branches of the Israeli government are using social media during this latest Gaza conflagration. In short, the Israeli military is employing the old "throw it against the wall and see what sticks" approach versus the Israeli diplomatic corps more nuanced and sophisticated tactics. Who knew that wars were going to be fought both on the battlefield as well as on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook?
Check out Rafi's great post here. I hope he analyzes Hamas's response next.
