with and about the Mayor of Gent as a Conversation Manager.

Conversation Mayor

Gent M #8 with Polle De Maagt, Fredo De Smet and Daniel Termont.


The idea was to proof our Mayor that social media is a good tool to stimulate participation. In an open debate we convinced the mayor of Gent to start using twitter. A day after subscription he had 2000 followers! Welcome twitter-newbee then, welcome twitter-mogul now with over 15.000 followers.
