Desmond Meagley’s political involvement happens mostly in front of a computer screen—tweeting, sharing world news on Facebook, or posting videos of police brutality to Vine. Mainstream politicians are starting to see social media’s impact, but Desmond says they’re missing the big picture. “I wasn’t watching [the last Republican Presidential debate] to decide who to vote for. I wanted to understand all the internet jokes about the candidates that would inevitably follow.” His commentary is on Youth Radio.
