Summarising and data mining Twitter for a summary of opinions expressed in a debate or for product preferences or an analysis of keywords can be useful. It also involves decisions as to how one filters the content out.
There is a tendency to want to Bumper sticker ideas and summary and concision is an enemy really of faceting complex systems, The Climate debate suffers from this tendency but so does the Field of Economics especially when it insists on pretending that Either money does not exist or that Politics does not exist or sometimes that both do not exist and every one acting in an Economic system are Totally Rational and operating with full knowledge of all possible system states.
Well I rose to the challenge when John Loundsbury tweeted this earlier today.
I found this fun tool for turning Twitter threads into Blog Posts, here is what Daniel its programmer says about it.
I made a Twitter app called Spooler. It turns Twitter threads into blog posts. Try it out! https://t.co/1SJwGtH5uq (early beta, expect bugs) pic.twitter.com/vNARR8HZrp

A slow and flawed tool that actually exists
Mostly I wanted to make a useful and thought-provoking thing. It has to work, but it doesn’t have to be fast. It has to be convenient, but not at the cost of other people’s privacy. And it has to actually exist, even if it’s a little flawed.
Spooler Does not scrape private data so Prof Werner’s contributions are sadly not used in the App so I have just pasted the parts of the discussion that Richard contributed below.
Amazing how the Bank of Japan stumbled fr one worst case policy to the next,perpetually, for 30 years. What’s the probability of such a unique & unusual combination of “policy errors” that mimic the simple explanation of a plan to create a boom-bust cycle that maximises CB power?2 replies0 retweets4 likesReply
In both cases it shows that CBs do not really understand what monetary policy is & the limitations of what it can achieve. Keynesian ideas of strong fiscal policy & accommodating monetary policy causes them to buy into the boom bust myth which, rather than alleviate, they cause0 replies0 retweets0 likesReplyRetweet
End of conversation
And Now we get to the Spooler Bit, which hopefully serves as an interesting summary. As spooler uses its own semantic and syntactical logic to create sentences this is not subject to any cherry picking from me.

“Government should be forced by law to balance their budgets.”
Imagine two countries of more or less equal size and equal resources who are at war. However, one has a balanced budget law and the other doesn’t. Which country will win the war? War is a social mobilization, and any economic theory worth its salt should be able to account for it. A “war” on greenhouse gas emissions would be another (better) kind of mobilization. A sovereign govt. always has the money to solve a problem if the real resources are there

cont .. Benign role of Money? , John you have to be joking. Money is debt and Usury is ruining the planet. I think it is you that needs to start thinking, I already am. My Main influence is Kreutz ( The Money Syndrome) and Bernard Leitaer. (letthemconfectsweeterlies.blogspot.se/2016/08/neo-li…)

A thread by Daniel Lacalle
The Thread is there and hopefully, John who started it will not delete it, the discussion has been temperate and very enjoyable. Often such discussions get deleted by disgruntled thread starters or Admins who claim rules’ breaches. This often happens in Climate discussions and also Holocaust discussions as for money, well Money hardly ever gets discussed I did an analysis of a Thread on Facebook in this post.
I’m a labor union historian, educator, change catalyst, and a dreamer. I strongly believe in the ability of working people to kick ass via social media.
Brandon Weber´s meme posting on Facebook is a practical demonstration of the observation of Benjamin Franklin’s regarding ignorance of monetary policy in respect of general discourses on politics.
85000 views and 379 comments only One regarding the money power.
Number of mentions of money 1, One a SINGLE ONE.
In 1729 Benjamin Franklin wrote a pamphlet ´´A modest Enquiry into the nature and the necessity of a paper Currency.”
a modest enquiry,
”There is no Science, the Study of which is more useful and commendable than the Knowledge of the true Interest of one’s Country; and perhaps there is no Kind of Learning more abstruse and intricate, more difficult to acquire in any Degree of Perfection than This, and therefore none more generally neglected. Hence it is, that we every Day find Men in Conversation contending warmly on some Point in Politicks, which, altho’ it may nearly concern them both, neither of them understand any more than they do each other.
Thus much by way of Apology for this present Enquiry into the Nature and Necessity of a Paper Currency. And if any Thing I shall say, may be a Means of fixing a Subject that is now the chief Concern of my Countrymen, in a clearer Light, I shall have the Satisfaction of thinking my Time and Pains well employed.
To proceed, then,
There is a certain proportionate Quantity of Money requisite to carry on the Trade of a Country freely and currently; More than which would be of no Advantage in Trade, and Less, if much less, exceedingly detrimental to it.
This leads us to the following general Considerations.”
Nafta and EU enlargement are interesting siblings and of course, the promises made for CETA TTP and TTIP are all too redolent of the Apple not falling far from the tree.
First the comment that explained the probable meaning of Will Rogers in the Trickle down meme.
Mick Serridge Century of Enslavement: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy and the Federal Reserve Bank Conspiracy. The truth is that the Federal Reserve is not federal at all, but owned since 1913 by twelve super-wealthy International Banking families, such as the Rothschild’s and the Rockefellers. They are the ones that control this country behind the scenes. They make public enemies of anyone who questions their methods or throw light upon their obvious crimes. To understand this theory we must understand that the real power is not with the politicians, but with the International Bankers. The money powers preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. What JFK did was to create interest-free government money, backed up by the silver reserve, contrary to the Federal Reserve money, which is not backed up by anything as we will see. He wanted to pay off the US debt this way. So by signing Executive Order 110, he was about to put the Federal Reserve Bank and the International Bankers out of business. The Federal Reserve Notes would eventually not be in demand anymore, and by doing so, Mr. Kennedy probably also signed his own death warrant. Executive Order 110 gave the U.S. the ability to create its own money backed up by silver. He obviously knew the secret about the Federal Reserve, and decided to follow the Constitution. Of course, this was a very dangerous thing to do, because if he was allowed to continue, it could put the International bankers out of business in the long run. So this was even more serious than to reorganize the CIA. This is a well hidden secret, but can even be verified in “Encyclopedia Britannica”, and by the statements in this article, as we shall see. This setup is against the US Constitution, where the government is supposed to create our money (the 16th Amendment), which should be backed up by gold and silver.

Roger Lewis Great Comment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFDe5kUUyT0
This Will Rogers meme and its large sample audience appeared to make a point in My Meet the Fuggers post about Brexit and Clueless elites Professor Richard Werner figures heavily in that very long post as well.
