Civility harder to achieve with social media

The Door County Civility Project held its first meeting in 2013, at the height of the social media age. Twitter was about to go public, and user growth was exploding for several services. Steering Committee member Shirley Senarighi says there is no easy answer as far as taming the web, but she does have some suggestions. 


The Civility Project has several goals; one of those is to encourage more participation in local government by improving how the public interacts with politicians. Senarighi says that this spring’s elections suggest there is more work to be done, but she is encouraged by the fact that coarse discourse or hostile treatment is no longer cited as a reason to avoid political office.
