Koplinski is active on Twitter and relatively good at posting on Facebook. His website is neat and clean, but the picture roll can be irksome for viewers. His activity and engagement levels are good for a candidate with lower name ID.

Twitter followers: 57,200
His website and his Facbook aren’t bad (despite a strange picture of weeds as his cover shot), though his Twitter was more his personal account at one time than his campaign account. So, not all of his tweets are campaign-related.

He did not create a new Facebook account for his Lt. Gov. campaign, but the one that he does use is the most populated and most followed of any candidate, by a wide margin. Unfortunately, he’s not much of a Twitter user (the last entry is from September of last year). He does have a great website, but that does not make up for his lacking presence on social media. Stack also wins “Most Flattering Profile Pic.”

The highlight is his campaign website. He does not his Facebook much at all and his Twitter is really just sparse postings of pictures. That said, he has a lot of Twitter followers.

Neuman has a pretty bad website, but decent Facebook. His Twitter is active but hasn’t quite cultivated a strong following yet.

The website isn’t too bad, but Smith is just the slightest bit more active on Facebook than Twitter. He hasn’t updated his Twitter since the end of February, except for one from March 14th. Basically, very low social media activity but good photos.
*Lt. Gov. Cawley does not use social media accounts for his campaign, instead works jointly with Governor Corbett.
