NBC News: Warren spent hours taking selfies with supporters after her big rally. Here’s why.. “If a voter meets a presidential candidate and no one is around to Instagram it, did it really happen? In 2019, smartphones are so ubiquitous that they get involved even when the candidate is right there, in the flesh, IRL, which is forcing candidates to adapt and find opportunities in the constant unquenchable demand for selfies.” Note to posterity: a lot of pedantic peeps on the Twitter are complaining that these are not really selfies but they’re being called selfies which means civilization is collapsing or something. Do me a solid and recall my soul from the realms of the dead to let me know if the word selfie evolved to encompass this activity, or if you made some new vocabulary. Thank you.
