@henrim: @drdigipol @mpetty but are they paying attention to what is actually being discuss? #gov20 #topprog #p2

@mpetty:
@henrim @drdigipol What if reps use Twitter for note taking or low frequency updates? Isn’t that part of 21c good faith? #gov20

@henrim: @mpetty @drdigipol I think they should use to talk to constituents when appropriate but not during hearings and major speeches #gov20

@ariherzog: @mpetty Perusing through your tweets. Why are you under fire for live-tweeting during meetings? What’s the argument? #gov20

@mpetty: @ariherzog Some say I’m wasting public time. Need to pay attention to those who are there. I’m saying Twitter helps me do that. #gov20

@ariherzog:
@mpetty Your tweet to me is the relevance to your tweeting. Or does the community not see the relevance of constituent services? #gov20

@ariherzog:
@mpetty Here’s the test: Say you don’t tweet but the press does. What does that say to the essence of the #gov20 tag?

@ariherzog: @mpetty Or a better test: Take the press out of the equation, but add the town muckracker. Every town has one. He tweets. #gov20

@mpetty: @ariherzog Don’t get me wrong, I’m not under fire from everyone. Most people appreciate the service. #gov20
