You didn't have to attend to Texas Democratic Convention this past weekend to participate in one of the most exciting parts of it. You just had to sit at your computer.
Senator Kirk Watson spent Friday and Saturday mornings conducting a Twitter Q&A. He picked the questions he answered. He picked the responses. While we have seen this level of openness and transparency on national levels through Twitter Town Halls, it's still amazing to see such an easy communication with citizens on the local level in Texas, where tricks and deception often lead the day.
Take a peek below the fold to see some of the highlights on my Storify. He fielded questions ranging from specific policy to even non-political questions. See for yourself.
