So President-elect Barack Obama will have a Facebook Administration. How about a Twittering Senate?
GovTrack.us, an independent watch-group for Senate activities, has a Twitter account called SenateFloor, with updates on proposed bills and amendments and their voting results. On Oct. 3, they updated on the Senate’s Oct. 1st vote to pass the Economic Stimulus Relief Bill, and included a link to a page outlining who voted yea or nay.
Will President Obama utilize Twitter during his administration? It would be a great tool to incorporate into his “open democracy through the Internet” plan. He already used it during his campaign, with 130,000 followers. But, for some reason, his account has been silent since Nov. 5.
