Before the council meeting, I spoke with City Administrator Howard Lazarus about his proposal to take additional public comment for the record in front of Ann Arbor City Council meetings. Members of the public would get 500 characters to express themselves in written format to be shared in the record.
As I've been able to see from Mastodon, there's a lot more that you can write in 500 characters than in 140. You do need a limit; perhaps 1000 would be better; but I like the idea.
