Social media is interesting. It helps me connect with fans. It’s immediate. It’s a big part of my touring business – getting the word out via Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

My presence in the social media and on the Internet is much bigger than many of the other candidates, including Mitt Romney. So, when you take the social media and you take the Tea Party citizens movement, you have a combination there that, quite frankly, 10 years ago, I wouldn’t have had a chance.

The sports space is so full of opinion that you aren’t hearing from the athletes just speaking for themselves. We are such a Twitter-oriented society with radio talk shows, TV talk shows and social media – what you are missing is the authentic, unfiltered aspect of who these people are.

Now, the term ‘friend’ is a little loose. People mock the ‘friending’ on social media, and say, ‘Gosh, no one could have 300 friends!’ Well, there are all kinds of friends. Those kinds of ‘friends,’ and work friends, and childhood friends, and dear friends, and neighborhood friends, and we-walk-our-dogs-at-the-same-time friends, etc.

I’m naturally shy, so the social media thing is new to me. I haven’t really figured out how my voice sounds on social media, you know? I don’t want to tweet everyday just for the sake of tweeting. I want to make sure whatever I do there is honest. Social media can very quickly get fake, and I don’t want to be that guy.

Social media has allowed groups, such as ISIL, to use the Internet to spot and assess potential recruits. With the widespread horizontal distribution of social media, terrorists can identify vulnerable individuals of all ages in the United States – spot, assess, recruit, and radicalize – either to travel or to conduct a homeland attack.

ISIL, AQ, now have the ability to literally reach into our homeland through social media, through the Internet, to recruit and inspire. It makes for a more complicated homeland security environment. And so it requires a whole of government approach, not just military and law enforcement, homeland security, aviation security, and the like.
