Apparently being funny and having the governor's social media experts get confused was enough to get the account killed. I can't find the @NYGovernor account now, other than in a couple of search results that have noticed that the account disappeared.
It seems that the most effective countermeasure to this stupidity is to use it against the powers that think it is such a great idea. The only real "public awareness" event that I have seen so far is when John McCain's campaign videos were taken down.
Can we not raise up some kind of grass roots "kill em all" campaign where everything that WMG and/or the congress and/or the white house cares about is taken offline? I think that it is stupid to discuss ways to skirt the issue, let's take the problem directly to the people causing it.
