    This is an interesting idea. Little time for politicians to reflect deep and tweet long. Political views are subject to contentions. The more politicians and opinion leaders write the more they are subjected to criticisms which may put their office at risk. Democracy also gets less vibrant. What is worse than using technology lesser is the fact that politicians’ ideas are usually an immediate response to a rival or a political rival to win public opinion one way or the other. Technology helps the free-flow of ideas. But politicians and other public figures are forced to use it cautiously and with a specific target. This would not promote the free flow of mature debates without which democracy cannot grow better.
