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.
