I'm curious how 'edem' has become the 'universal' hashtag - esp when there 
don't appear to be any tweets available with it more than 7 days old.

What about 'egov' or 'gov20' or 'gov2'?

I would argue that e-democracy is a type of e-government and not the other 
way around (making the latter the umbrella term), as the latter includes 
forms of interaction with government that are not strictly about 
deliberation and decision-making.

Ah, open tagging - a double-edged sword.
