But, alas, it's come to this because I find the very success of my live-blogging of council meetings has attracted an audience that, in part, doesn't understand it, or overly analyzes it or just completely misses the point.
To back up: I've been covering municipal governments as a reporter for my entire career, in dozens of cities in two countries. Up until a few years ago, that consisted mostly of sitting in meetings, reviewing documents, interviewing people and writing up short articles after the fact. The life of a reporter.
But then came Twitter.
