#kirkcouncil – Tweeting Democracy

Tweeting and live webcasting of council meetings is a way to improve and increase citizen participation, engagement and communication with local authorities. Kirklees Council are a local authority committed to developing such communications for the citizens they serve. Live webcasts of their council meetings are complemented by a growing number of officers, councillors and members of the public ‘tweeting the meeting’. We’ve pulled that twitter feed in here. Feel free to join up and contribute.
