DB8 a real tweet

hi all,

it’s time I got back to the Blahgg Blog after a very enjoyable stint as a community blogger for the CBC. I’ll miss it when it’s over. But I’ll be better rested as most of my evenings are spent on twitter and facebook keeping track of all the election news – or, in my new favourite twitter lingo #elxn41 (it’s a hash tag – i didn’t know what it was either till I ventured into the 140 character universe that is twitter).

Home just now from the all candidates debate where I used twitter to keep notes on the evening’s topic.

And you can keep alot of notes in 140 character posts. So I’ll repurpose them here to give you the vibe of the event (and a peak at what a tweet looks like)  in case you might have had other things to do tonight (GO CANUCKS).

Here’s the recap with a thanks to the SA Chamber for hosting the event. well done. we should do this more often.

Here’s what a tweet looks like. lwmediability is my “handle”. And if you’re not from here, Mayes is the incumbent MP and the Smart Centres issue has to do with the building of a big box mall on/near local wetlands.

Db8 – top issue health – Crowd punchy. Incumbent defensive. Greens/LIBS well spoken. NDP a bit green. Smart centres ? no comment gdnite
