It seems from these two admirable women that having a PhD, jobs in journalism or publishing as well as winning literary awards, doesn't cut the mustard either when getting ahead in dealing with ra-ra-ra and it's all about being a constant presence on social media platforms.
I wonder why the the word "platform" (i.e. a flat surface) is used when discussing social media? It's totally wrong. The whole process is hardly straight, linear or smooth, it is a frenetic bun-fight, not unlike being on one of those mouse or hamster wheels going nowhere fast or on an endless roller coaster.
