* Strange Bedfellows in the Tweeterverse

Today’s New York Times features three dramatic examples of working  “outside of channels,”  an approach I have always used myself:
·        Dennis Rodman agreeing to coach North Korea’s basketball team in preparation for the Olympics
·        Pope Francis  making “cold calls” by phone to the faithful who are suffering
·        Vladimir Putin  circumventing diplomatic channels and proposing an “out” for Obama and America who are painted into a corner behind their Syrian ‘red-liine.’

These three strange bedfellows may be harbingers of a new world of tweeting overtures and diplomacy.

Stay tuned for the next decade of chirps.
