Sen. Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign marked a turning point in using social media and grass-roots outreach to propel a “people-powered revolution” in politics. The campaign’s digital outreach tactics — then groundbreaking but now expected — were cover story fodder for Rolling Stone, a magazine known not only for its coverage of music but also social and political issues.
