Dan Olson hopes he and his tweets put a "dent in political apathy."
Olson and a group of members of the public were at Maple Ridge council meeting on Tuesday sending messages on Twitter about issues being discussed, at times tweeting
out decisions ("Council voted 4-3 against gathering...") and at times giving their personal opinion ("Oh crap things are going sideways...").
"It will develop a life of its own," Olson said about bringing social media into the gallery,
which he said was to increase communication.
Next, Olson said he would like to see livestreaming of the meetings.
"[That] would open [council meetings] to people in outlying areas," he said.
