Cook Co. Board could ban meeting tweeting

On Tuesday, the Cook County Board Rules and Administration Committee is expected to consider a proposal that would prohibit members from using social networking sites, such as Twitter, to convey political messages during board and committee meetings. Commissioner Joseph Mario Moreno is the sponsor of the proposal.

Observers say they see it as a continuation of a fight between Moreno and Tony Peraica, who often sends out tweets.
