Wow. What a pile of horse dung. Encouraging JOs and junior enlisted to bypass their COC just so an O7+ can “understand” issues within his command? Seriously? Maybe it’s time for the CSMs to stop their fixation on grass, rocks, haircuts, etc and return them to being the “eyes and ears” of the commander. Let the PSG and PLs do their jobs and not be micro managed. And maybe get the BCs out of the gym or serving food in the DFAC to sit down with his officers monthly and have meaningful ODP.

If the COC is unable or unwilling to understand the strain of training, deployment, and family responsibilities, then they are unfit to lead.

You foster communication at the personal level, not via twitter or WTF Army.

“””even if what the senior leader does is passively lurk and learn”””. That part, gleaning information seems logical.

For them to speak up or refute any of that information on the site would be denying use of those communication platforms to juniors.

I’ve only been on Twitter a short time but from what I’ve seen the GO’s that I interact with seem to have a very keen sense of when where and how to get into conversations. I’ve not seen any senior leaders try to burn anyone publicly or anything. And of course, blocking/not friending is a thing.

I am of two minds regarding this, one, yes I can see the benefits to a command that monitoring social media can provide, but I also see the darker side of it, where it could be utilized in a very dark and twisted way. General so and soo may happen to be a strong Trump supporter, SPC so and so is not, and harshly criticizes Trump, General glances at the critics profile, and see this solder is in his command, simply goes through his C&S slides, or other tools (like a UMR) to pinpoint what unit this troop is in, and lets his buddy and ring mate know this Soldier is a problem. Or Vice Versa, Trump supporter posting on his/her social media, General or Colonel so and so is vehemently against Trump, and uses their position to silence. I do not Trust any Officer to be beyond reproach, too many scandals, too many shady shit they have been caught doing.
