I realized something this week.
A lot of politicians, including our own Mayor Jerry Sanders, are using Twitter to communicate with us all in a new way.
But the dynamics of Twitter make it so that the social media application could very easily become a constant, open-to-everyone press conference. In the past, news consumers couldn’t really go to press conferences, and they relied on reporters to ask the right questions, challenge the politicians and report the story appropriately. Now things have changed.
You can all get on Twitter, and by putting @MayorSanders in your post or “tweet” you will get his attention. At least, you will get the attention of whoever mans his Twitter feed.
