I agree, it’s the people behind the government that are funny, not the government itself. Publicly it should be about the work getting done, but one of the greatest benefits of social media for me has been the ability to see the personalities behind government work. It allows you to connect with decision makers in a much more transparent way. Seeing that these perceived ominous government workers are actually very real with a sense of humor makes the ‘government’ as a whole seem less threatening and makes me feel like I too can be involved and can take a more active role in influencing these decisions.
