MPS electing to tweet
The website Tasmanian MP Tweets offers some better ideas. It is the Tasmanian state politician version of the site MP Tweets ( which covers federal politicians). The goal of this site is to investigate and report on the usage of Twitter among state politicians in Tasmania. Who tweets the most? Who has the most replies?
Out of 40 sitting politicians, 12 are on Twitter. More than 7000 tweets have been posted, averaging 10 a day in the past fortnight.
Labor Party members make up 41.7 per cent of tweets, while Liberal Party members make up 30.3 per cent, with Greens and independents making up the rest.
Even if you’re not a keen # politas ( Tasmanian politics) hashtag follower, Twitter provides a unique way to gain personal insight and offer some transparency into the people and processes we vote for or against.
Tasmanian MP Tweets compiles Twitter users and statistics of Tasmanian MPS and while it’s not comprehensive, it’s a fascinating tally- board of who’s active on the site.
