UK councils more creative than Aussie counterparts

I dips me lid to local councils in the UK. 

Their innovative use of social media to help provide better and quicker services, has left their Australian counterparts looking lame indeed.

UK researcher, Liz Azyan, has Twittered this list of  British councils which are now using social media. Many thanks Liz.

It’s particularly interesting to see how some of the UK authorities are using Twitter for specific uses, such as listing development applications, or providing up-to-the-minute reports of roadwork.

I’m envious of their vision and user-friendly approach to providing services.
