IT HAS been said that if Barack Obama wasn’t US President, most politicians probably wouldn’t be on Twitter.
He made the bite- size social media service appealing to politicians by showing them that it’s a great way to establish a grassroots campaign.
Currently, he has staffers tweeting for him, mostly discussing his policies in office. It’s an informative Twitter stream, as is the White House on Twitter.
As Tasmanian Liberal candidate for Bass Andrew Nikolic showed earlier this month, it’s easy to get it wrong in social media by taking things too personally.
