#Shutdown Dominates Social

It’s not a shocker that the fight on Capitol Hill has spilled all over social media.

President Obama posted a message to the troops on the web.. reassuring them they’ll be ok during the shutdown. His twitter and facebook pages have been very active.. but that’s not the case for most government sites. A lot of them will go dark.. others will use essential personnel to update important information.

This issue is hitting people hard and they want you to hear about it. The Today Shows #DearCongress hashtag easily became the top trend in the US.
