Love the polls
January 12, 2010 - Pat Beck
I love the comments we get. Well, for the most part. The Leader-Herald is more accessible than any time in our 122-year history. Just take the time to read comments to stories, comments on polls, on our face book page or on other local chat boards and you are bound to get the answer that you like best. We placed the question on the comment section of our online edition – Is it a good idea for public officials to use Twitter and Face book to inform the public?
So far, the results are 30% yes to 70% no.
From time to time I vote on polls and can honestly say that I am a part of the 70%.
One responder shared: “Twitter and face book certainly aren't a bad idea as an additional means of communicating with the public, especially when trying to reach younger people. drugsrus, (one of the creative names of poster) perhaps you haven't noticed, but fewer and fewer people are relying on traditional media sources such as newspapers these days. The standards of communication are quickly changing with technology. It would probably be worth taking note instead of ranting about how terrible 'younger people' are. geeesh!”
Well, geeesh yokie, I sure am glad that you found your way to a “newspaper” site to express your view. Seriously.
I had to agree with another poster, adirondackal, who feels that “Tweeting from the well of the House during the State of the Union is purely bogus, though.”
I have been to too many meetings from governmental to religious and there is just too much twittering going on.
If any of our readers have a question that they would like to have considered, let us know!
