I have started using Twitter a bit more earnestly in the last couple weeks. I had put it off for along time, not really seeing the value. But now I am hooked and learning from it. I am working on a longer post about Twitter. But in the meantime here is a cool service that links you to Congresspeoples’s Twitter accounts. And this page is a list of California Senators and Representatives who don’t yet use Twitter. Come on Mike Thompson. Get yer Tweet on! Nancy Pelosi, I’m following you…
Get Congress on Twitter!

I have been when surprised that DM’ing someone on twitter was the only way to get them to respond. I have seen it happen in campaigns. I love twitter!
Yeah. That’s a problem. But they don’t personally answer email or letters, either, for the most part. But if they Tweet, you can reply or DM them and maybe someone reads those. So it is another channel of communication.
Cool links, thanks Bob! Let me know if you find any congresspeople who actually personally tweet, as opposed to just using it for staff to shotgun out policy statements and blog posts. (As of yet, I have not).
