If Prof. Sreenivasan had to give the President and the GOP candidates grades on their social media savvy, how would he rank them?

Who does he consider the most daring and who is the most plodding?

Given all the potential for major gaffes and the massive caution one imagines that all the candidates' media people advocate, which of the candidates comes across as the most "natural" or "real" in their online personas?
