Biden Launches Twitter Account @truth to Counter Trump's Debate Lies in Real Time

Source: Daily Kos

It sounds like the perfect countermeasure to Trump’s constant lying. It’s a joint project of the Biden Campaign (@JoeBiden) and the DNC War Room (@DNCwarroom).

The Biden Campaign has already been using Twitter extremely effectively to broadcast video ads, and sometimes even to live-stream events. They are getting literally millions of views through Twitter.

It’s also impressive that they were able to snag the Twitter handle, @truth!

I will surely be checking their feed throughout the debate. You can, too, even without an account, right here: twitter.com/...

12. Sounds like how he and Obama had the Truth Team" up and running back in 2012

Obama’s ‘Truth Team’ aims to network its way to a reelection win

By David Nakamura
February 13, 2012

With his decision to embrace an independent super PAC last week, President Obama issued a plea for deep-pocketed allies to help his campaign fight back against Republican rivals in the increasingly expensive and sophisticated arena of television attack ads. Now, the Obama campaign is putting out a call for its grass-roots network to join the battle for free. On Monday, the president’s reelection team will unveil a trio of Web sites dedicated to providing supporters with information on the president’s record — and more than a little dirt on his Republican rivals.

The campaign has named it Obama’s “Truth Team,” and the goal is to arm millions of surrogates with the facts, figures and talking points they need to engage in ground-level political combat — on their Twitter and Facebook feeds and in old-fashioned conversations with friends and neighbors. “We believe that our grass-roots supporters persuading their networks to support the president will provide us with the decisive edge in November,” Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said. “We’re providing them with the tools they need to amplify the president’s record, fact-check the Republicans’ attacks and prevent the Republicans from rewriting the history of their records.”

The strategy is a modern adaptation of the rapid-response teams that Bill Clinton pioneered in his 1992 war room, where aides monitored multiple televisions to respond as quickly as possible to GOP attacks. But it also reflects a dispiriting acknowledgment by the Obama campaign that his 2012 reelection bid promises to be as ugly and bruising as his 2008 insurgent effort was uplifting — and the war must be waged at even the day-to-day micro level.

“As technology has developed, this process has developed,” said Democratic pollster Mark Mellman. “I remember some years ago when it was avant-garde to fax talking points to a list of party people who had given you their fax numbers. Now, it’s much faster, but it’s the same basic principle.”
