UDI group makes use of Twitter

Twitter was once the stomping ground of teenage social media geeks, but its long-since become the go-to method to get a message out.

The latest to get tweeting on meaty matters is the Urban Development Institute, which will today have live Twitter coverage of its sold out mayoralty forum on civic planning issues.

“Social media is one of the most powerful and most democratic communications tools ever invented,” UDI Okanagan president Renee Wasylyk.

“We are excited that voters will be able to monitor the forum and learn more about candidate positions on civic planning issues.”

The creators of www.KelownaVotes.com, a website designed to educate voters on candidates and to promote the use of social media during the election, will be tweeting coverage of the forum, which starts today at 12:30 p.m.

Voters can follow the forum on Twitter using  #kelownavotes.

During the forum candidates will be asked about issues relating to planning, development and building a sustainable community.

The forum is part of an awareness campaign that will run during the election campaign.
