#nzpol Damian Light: What online content helps you engage the most about things you’re passionate about?

I love Twitter – its quick, open and unfiltered. It’s amazing how much information you can fit into 140 characters. News breaks online instantly and there can be great debates. The internet can be such a great equaliser – just because you’re wealthy or powerful, doesn’t mean you can shout louder online than those who are not.

There are some risks – because you control who you follow it can be a bit of an echo chamber, only seeing opinions you agree with. I try and combat this by following people who challenge my views – it helps me ensure that I’m getting a slightly more balanced view.
