“Your TellTaleSM Monitoring service identified a state legislator posting positive comments about our technology. Ironically, this legislator also is sponsoring adverse legislation with respect to the same technology. The insights from the social media posts give us a new opportunity to approach this legislator and enlighten him about how the technology works in both applications.”
