With Epic Sarcasm, Peggy Noonan Slays Clueless Defense Of Twitter Mobs

Peggy Noonan spent Monday evening mocking Kara Swisher of Recode in a string of tweets that managed to be perfectly casual and utterly ruthless. It all started when Swisher took issue with Noonan’s latest column, which drew smart parallels between the Chinese Cultural Revolution and today’s mob activity on social media.

Swisher then hilariously suggested people watch her South By Southwest panel with Kathy Griffin “to see what a coordinated attack actually costs.”

Noonan was unfazed. The Pulitzer Prize winner went to work dressing down Swisher’s critique with the driest of sarcasm. I don’t have much to say about these tweets because her savagery speaks for itself.
