Democracy by tweet

by

Steve Paikin convenes a panel—including Treasury Board President Tony Clement, the NDP’s Charlie Angus and our own Jesse Brown—to discuss technology and politics.

I confess to being somewhat closer to Mr. Angus’ position when it comes to Twitter, at least insofar as its impact on the last election cycle is concerned. I’ve tended to think its been like introducing crack into the political sphere: rendering everything that takes place within this world even more incomprehensible to those on the outside.
