Twitter Cabinet 7


I’m a late adopter of twitter.
I always thought this social media platform was for self centered wa%#!rs.
It turns out I was wrong.
Twitter enables everyday Australians to cut through the red tape, to get past email inboxes and protective receptionists and speak directly to the powerbrokers.
Last night’s ACT Twitter Cabinet was the first that I’ve watched [...]

And here we go with #actvcc

By 12 June 2012

The ACT Virtual Community Cabinet, possibly the stupidest thing in the sorry history of humanity doing stupid things, is kicking off again from 12.30.
Be part of the signal to noise ratio below or by searching for #actvcc .
I mean what better use of an hour is watching people who could have used google get referred [...]

Twitter cabinet with added n00b horror @ACTVCC


[ 12 June 2012 at 12:30 pm; ]

We have in the past been less than enthusiastic about Twitter Community Cabinets.

But the ACT Government is to be congratulated for finding a way to make it even more horrible.

They’re promoting the upcoming 12 June TwitCab and (here’s the evil genius part) are encouraging non twitter users to take a quick Library course on Twitter [...]

Problems with a virtual community #actvcc

By 29 November 2011

The ACT Government has found quite a clever way to avoid facing tough questions from journalists or unhappy constituents.
It seems they have discovered the fascinating world of Twitter.
Yesterday did not mark the first time the ACT Virtual Community Cabinet was held, but it was the first time I had heard of it.
How many of you [...]

Twitter Community Cabinet sallies forth once again. #actvcc

By 21 November 2011

It seems like only yesterday that we were thrilling to the worst form of communication yet devised, the Twitter Community Cabinet of August.
But it’s something our pollies can just about get their tiny heads around, and it gets them glowing press from journos trying to justify their personal Twitter use on company time!
Therefore Chief Minister [...]

August Virtual Community Cabinet in review.

By 30 August 2011 FEATURED ARTICLE

Once again four cabinet ministers debased themselves on the altar of Canberra’s tiny twitter community.
The self-promoters, the attention seekers and the griefers were out in force, as were the jokers. It was all one would expect from a community as self-regarding as Twitter.
Here’s a look at the tweets that caught my eye (taken from two [...]

ACT Virtual Community Cabinet: How to do it better

By 29 July 2011

While I applaud the idea of using technology to make community cabinet meetings more accessible and representative of the community, we used the wrong technology.  Twitter is great for discussion, but it is terrible for ensuring that the time is spent answering the best questions.  It also won’t scale if any decent number of people [...]
