next on the_browser :: Tweetin’ City Council

Next on the_browser my guests are Burlington City Councilor Ed Adrian and Seven Days Associate Publisher Cathy Resmer.  The topic: Tweeting city council meetings.  Councilor Adrian is active on Twitter (see @counciloradrian) and Cathy Resmer (@cresmer) is one a few folks who live-Tweet the Winooski City Council Meetings.

They join me live in The Radiator studios to talk about their use of Twitter in general as well as Tweetin’ town meetings.  What’s the benefit?  Are there drawbacks?  What have their experiences been?

Got a question?  Pre-Tweet it and mention my Twitter handle, @jonathanpb the hashtag #wommlp.  Do you have really strong opinions and want to join us in the studio?  Contact me (my Gmail is the same as my Twitter).

Listen Wednesday at 6pm on


Our chat, and a pic.
