Using Twitter to speed up information distribution

leave a comment »

As someone with a special interest in the take up of social media among government authorities, I have been following the giant strides being made in the UK.

Top marks to local councils that have started using Twitter to speed up the distribution of news and information; Facebook to help promote services; and blogs as a consultation tool.

Twitter, in particular, has the potential to revolutionise information distribution.

Even the British Prime Minister is using the Twitter service effectively, just as the American presidential candidates are doing. Take a look at the UK PM’s updates . 

It is certainly food for thought.
