It seems that Twitter has crossed the ocean and become part of the political dialogue and toolkit of members of Parliament in the United Kingdom. A new web site, Tweetminster, aims to aggregate the Tweets of MP’s and other leaders, as well as to connect visitors with their own politicians.
A Tweetminster press release touts the adoption of Twitter in recent weeks across the pond:
TweetMinster aims to realise Twitter’s potential of enabling real-time
conversations between members of parliament and voters. Since its
launch, the number of MPs on Twitter has grown week on week, George
Foulkes became the first Lord to join Twitter and several MPs have
“tweeted” during the Prime Minister’s Question Time.
