For the second straight week Social Media Sam is sad due to loss of life.
His name was the #1 searched term on Google for the last 7 days:
When I found out that Chris Kyle was the victim I can’t deny my first though was, wait a minute, wasn’t that the guy that said he punched Gov.Jesse Ventura?
Then I remember that Jesse Ventura had called him a liar and sued him for his claim.
Then I remembered Chris Kyle appearing on television basically bragging about how many people he killed, he even wrote a book about it called American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History.
I thought. Well, Karma’s a bitch. If you live by the sword you probably won’t die from a spider bite. Maybe he shouldn’t have shot dead over 160 people, some from MILES away with his super high powered rifles?
Then I remembered this quote from Gandhi:
Hate the sin. Love the sinner.
….and I thought damn, this man Chris Kyle left behind a family that now has been traumatized FOREVER by these events.
Someone lost a dad, husband, father, son, brother, cousin, uncle, friend, neighbor, and more.
I can only imagine what they are going though right now so I send my condolences, thoughts, and prayers.

> Back to #SoMeSa <
I made the decision when I started the #SoMeSa series to talk about the number one trending topic on the interwebs no matter how inconvenient or controversial.
- Sometimes its sad or somber like this and the last episode,
- Sometimes it’s hilarious and gross at the same time like #SoMeSa episode #2.
I’ts not up to me I just talk about what happens and share it with you.
Hopefully something good will happen for next weeks episode.
I don’t know what else to tell you except “think good thoughts”.

SoMeSA Tip #2 – Twitter:
This week was also big for Twitter as the news came out that advertisers mentioned it during the Super Bowl more than any other social media platform.
The moral of the story, Twitter isn’t going anywhere. I hope Apple doesn’t buy them even though they should if they want to stop their decline.
The second tip of this episode comes from David Masters. I know everyone is trying to do the same thing on twitter so don’t miss his article, and don’t forget to tell him I sent you:
