I'll be watching the Democratic debates in about an hour, and I've been thinking about how social media changes the way we participate in democracy.
I'll be watching the debate with my Twitter feed open, and I'll probably also follow this Slate mash-up of left-leaning tweets laid side-by-side with right-leaning tweets displayed live.
What about you? Are you watching the debates tonight? Will you be using any social media while you do it? If so, does it enhance your critical engagement or is it just more entertaining?
