The government can’t be all that bad. They Twitter. They don’t make us practice until we’re almost dead for the Olympics. Plus they use other social media sites to communicate and encourage freedom of press. Now, if they could just let reporters live twit during press conferences it would look just like BlogWorld – speakers could look down at an audience of laptops.
Silicon Valley nerds may be early adopters of social media – but the government is not only twittering, they are blogging and using other social media platforms (and maybe they should subsidize it too!).
