Labour Party gets serious about Twitter

The British Labour party have appointed MP Kerry McCarthy as head of their social media efforts in an effort to improve the party’s use of sites such as Twitter and Facebook ahead of the next election.

The Bristol East MP, recently named the most influential MP on Twitter, was appointed by Labour’s general election co-ordinator Douglas Alexander.

She will train MPs and candidates in the best use of the internet.

Irish political parties really need to take note that this interweb thing is here to stay. Yes some of our political representitives have embraced social media but very few are putting it too good use.
