Yes they love avoiding the public, public contact, and public scrutiny by using social media that's nothing new.

In Kansas City the purposes of the public are to:
Pay taxes and be sure the public trough is always as full as possible.
Attend empty meetings and make believe there is actual information being shared and that their opinions are taken into account.
Join the latest nonprofit or neighborhood group and endlessly dialogue, facilitate, and identify stakeholders.
Occasionally cast a pointless ballot when they've been snowed into thinking some project is actually about them by people like Glorioso or Rowe.
Other than that; SHUT UP!
