MEPs are Twittering too
Text size Aa Aa

Call someone a ‘twit’ these days and it might just mean ‘modern’. Politics, communication and electronics come together at the new ‘’ site. The Parliament’s members have taken to twittering.

Twitter, the free social networking and micro-blogging service, lets the upcoming election candidates check the electorate’s pulse. The site shows the number of tweets each political group gets. Users can send and read other users’ updates (tweets). These are text-based postings up to 140 characters long, free over the Internet, possibly costing something when sent by mobile phone. Coming soon: widgets. Try calling someone a ‘widget’. (It’s technological.)
