Twits on Twitter 2

On the other side of the Big Pond:

The Labour party has appointed a “Twitter tsar” with the responsibility of encouraging MPs to use new media.

Kerry McCarthy, MP for Bristol East, has been made the party’s new media campaigns spokeswoman ahead of an election next year that she says will be the first “new media election”. A recent study for a newspaper voted McCarthy the most “influential MP” on Twitter – with more than 1,600 followers.
