34 Local Councils now on Twitter
There is a new updated and reformatted list of UK local council twitters. A data has been refitted into a table for a better view of details. This list now can be found here.
I’m interested to know how this list is helping your council. Is it helping the social media bid for your local council? Or does it help you to consider how you wish to use Twitter for your organization? Please tell me what your thoughts are and hopefully I can improve the output of this research.
