Is it that deeply unfashionable to be a Republican or a Tory? Are young people not prepared to take the risk of saying something that might come back to haunt them? Or is it just that conservatives are less fashion-conscious, and don’t feel the need to constantly declare their political affilations? (…)
The social cost of saying something right-wing online can be enormous, and reputations can be shattered very easily on Twitter. I know several young conservatives who censor themselves, creating an “acceptable” public persona so as not to be ridiculed or derided. Surely Twitter is the perfect medium for free, stream-of-consciousness expression. It’s a terrible shame that young conservatives feel so oppressed.
