The Twitter Candidate

If you're on Twitter and don't know about Jason Pollock, then you probably haven't been on Twitter very long. But if you are and do know who he is, then you're probably following him. Why? Not only is Jason a Huffington Post blogger, photography enthusiast, activist and twitter guru but he has also made an extraordinary and poignant film (judging by the trailer) called "The Youngest Candidate" about our younger generation being proactive in government roles, specifically by following the story of 4 teens that ran for public office in America.

The film is produced by David Letterman's production company and by Quentin Tarantino's producer Lawrence Bender. Not only that, but Jason is using an amazingly unique approach to promote the film via the internet. Jason is easily accessible via Twitter and is extremely engaging about his film...please check out the trailer above and his youtube channel, the official #TYC website and follow the Twitter titan to stay up to date with not just his film, but Twitter trends, amazing photography links and good vibes. Can't wait to see the whole film J!
