Twittering Politicians

Twitter has exploded into the public consciousness recently thanks to the likes of Stephen Fry and the BBC’s fascination with it from Jonathan Ross, Richard Bacon and even most amazingly Terry Wogan.

Politicians are catching up rapidly.  No.10 Downing Street passed MC Hammer in popularity today and two services in particular help us find the more obscure users in the political sphere.

  • Tweetminster follows MPs and Prospective Parliamentary Candidates
  • CllrTweeps is building a list of Councillors who tweet

Both seem to be developing fast and are worth checking up on from time to time.
