If posts and other content invite comments, users are linked back to the website.

By far the coolest feature is live streaming video, kicking off today with Domestic Policy Advisor Melody Barnes, who hosted a live chat and answered questions submitted via Facebook on school reform.

Useless excercise? Maybe, but if nothing else, it demonstrates how people want to participate, share opinions and be heard. Sounds like our customers?

Here are a few screenshots from my “Twittorama”-experience:
