Is there a way to enhance public meetings using social media tools? Today, most municipalities only offer live streaming which is great but not interactive.
Taking a look at TV, newscasters are beginning to use Twitter to get an immediate sense of what people are thinking about. However, this requires moderation or you’ll run into problems like the Twitter experiment at Trinity Church in NYC. Could we use the many eyes of the public to moderate Tweets/comments? I personally like the approach of CoverItLive where event hosts have a large number of tools to help manage comments. Are there other tools or approaches?
