NDP #asklayton Town Hall

posted by @cka_politwit on Apr 26, 2011

The NDP had an online town hall today with questions from callers and people on Twitter using the #asklayton hashtag. The actual live video stream had many problems in the first half, low audio volume then suddenly spiking high. The video would often freeze or cut out completely, but these issues seemed to fade. It appeared that most questions were from callers on the phone and not twitter though.

So how popular was this on Twitter? There was 752 tweets during the townhall. So nothing mind blowing, not breaking into the Twitter.com top trends, but a clever use of Twitter none the less. Also interesting to note that they were moderating tweets that were displayed on the NDP website using the hashtag, probably a good idea.

3 MPs and 7 candidates tweeted with the hashtag.

Here are some of the most tweeted topics: promises, jobs, childcare, reform, postsecondary, internet
