Discussion in DresdenOn 5th of June 2010 the City of Dresden started an open online-dialog about the development of a historical place in the center of the city, called Neumarkt Platz. Over the course of 4 weeks citizens are invited to discuss their ideas and proposals and comment on the ideas of other participants. The website offers information about the history and architecture of the place. At the end the results will be evaluated, documented and integrated in the announcement of the construction plan.

This makes it possible to comment and work on the news of Twitter in the same way as with the other proposals on the website and send them back to Twitter afterwards.
