The media and pundits are really missing the boat by solely extolling the virtues of a petty billionaire demagogue named Donald Trump, and beating on Hillary because her name is Clinton -- instead of looking at the new trends available over social media.

We caught up with Akshay on what he learned from his Tip'd Off journey, from the day he started it to the day it got acquired.
