Watching a live event while tweeting can be super fun. I did that during the presidential debates last fall, on last Thursday I did it when the MN House debated marriage equality, and right now I’m tweeting about the same debate in the MN Senate.
I’m connecting with people who are just as passionate about this issue as me. I’m “chatting” with locals and people who aren’t local who still give just as much of a damn about this as I do.
That’s just plain cool! I love technology.
