The Twitter Revolution – a time for democratic renewal

This has been interesting to follow on Twitter from the point of view of the instigator.

Wales has a legacy of a sizable subset of politicians who

  • Don't use technology more advanced than a hand driven egg whisk
  • Don't understand why other people might find technology more advanced than an early 1990's tractor (and nothing wrong with early 1990's tractors, but electrics rather than electronics) useful or necessary

A position which persists at all levels to this day. I can demonstrate the above in the evening of any 3rd tuesday of the month which will leave you in no doubt a lack of technology awareness is inhibiting economic and social progress in Wales.

So it is really nice to see a politician enthusiastic about demonstrating the utility of technology to engage with the wider population. Engaging with the wider community who are not paid up Plaid Cymru members is still a bridge the party has to cross, but appear to be a few pages further forward than the big 3 in the UK.
