I've joined the Twittering classes

Just started using Twitter – after all, if it’s good enough for Mayor candidate Brian Paddick, it should be good enough for me too!

If you’ve never heard of it before – Twitter is a free service that is sort of a cross between mini-blog updates and Facebook style status messages. You can sign up to follow anyone you want and then get their updates direct to your mobile phone – free.

You can follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/lfeatherstone and Brian is at http://twitter.com/brianpaddick

PS I couldn’t see any other MP using Twitter, so I think I might be the first – but let me know if that’s wrong! (Update: the answer seems to be I’m sort of the first – see Puffbox for details.)

  1. *adds to following list*I find the most useful function is setting it to also port to my Facebook status, there’re two apps that do it. Then I can text from anywhere and update, was fun at Conference when I remembered.Then you can cross post a daily digest to your blog using loudtwitter, then you can get really carried away…

  2. I think your website & facebook account is enough PR publicity, you don’t need this silly twiddy or whatever it is called.

  3. Twitter might be the next big thing. Twitter might turn out to be a flop. Good on you for trying it out though.
