since i started reworking the theory behind our democratic approach
i got scared to realize that the PP-DE has a huge e-democracy
dependency for making its party procedures work, which is a 3rd
party commercial service called twitter.

have fun tweeting, but
- dont use it for fighting out opinions
- avoid talking about your most private affairs
- develop an independent channel for advertising political views
  to vote about (see #lqfb hashtag mostly)

and certainly don't go personal on others, but that's a conseguence of
the above.

in italy we mostly rely on liquid's builtin notification system
and a general once-a-day login habit for people to just *find*
interesting new issues and help them over the quorum. also, the
delegations help in this: one or two respected pirates' support
is enough to bring a proposal into debate mode. no need to tweet
about it. twitter is for talking to the outside world.
