MLA Twitter list

With more MLAs than ever embracing Twitter, I have compiled a list of the 50 Assembly members to date who have created accounts.

While the 50 accounts may represent less than half of Stormont’s 108 MLAs, it shows an increasing acknowledgement from the political establishment of Twitter as a potentially useful, even powerful means of communication. Particularly in light of the use of the NI Executive Twitter account for releasing the results of the D’Hondt process for the new Executive.

Twitter list for the Assembly Election 2011 #ae11

I’ve been working on a comprehensive twitter list as a resource for the upcoming May elections. You can access it here.

Although I’ve called it ‘Assembly Election 2011‘, to keep things straight-forward, I’ve also included local election (#le11) candidates in the list as well.

The list generally includes candidates, party feeds, political staff, commentators and bloggers, but I’m continually adding to the list all the time. Feel free to include your suggestions.
