I attended the Town Hall Meeting in Van Munching and it was a great discussion. I'm glad I got the opportunity to sit and listen. Some topics of interest were the youth vote, race's role in the election, a "post-racial" society, and Obama's use of technology throughout the race.
Yet, I found Twitter to be a little weird. I posted a great deal throughout the hour I was there, but after a while, I noticed my posts weren't being shown in the main discussion. I'm not sure why that happened. (It made me wonder if my blogs were inappropriate or blocked or something of that nature.) This bothered me; I didn't want to keep posting once I realized no one could see my posts in the main discussion.
If there was something I missed or didn't catch, Twitter respondents immediately posted. This was helpful. However, some of the posts contained wrong information and misspelling of names (something that really bugs me). If journalists use Twitter on a regular basis, does this mean that accurate reporting will go out the window?
Any thoughts? Should journalists use Twitter?
