Results: Twitter & Politics Survey

I recently participated in a survey on politics and Twitter from Emily's Reading Room.  The questions were:

1. Which of the following describe you: reader, author, blogger, teacher/librarian, publishing professional?

2.Does it bother you when an author tweets about or retweets a link that is political/partisan?

3.Have you ever not read a book by an author because of a political comment made on twitter?

4. Have you ever unfollowed an author because of a political comment made on twitter?

An interesting set of questions.  Some hundred people from Twitter participated, and the results are up on Emily's Reading Room here.  When I took the survey, questions #2-4 seemed so similar as to be almost redundant, but it was interesting to see how the answers fluctuated.  There's some portion of people who state that political tweets don't bother them, but that political tweets have, in fact, caused them not to read an author's books.

Any thoughts from all the reader, author, blogger, teacher/librarian, and publishing professional out there?
