Government gets to grips with social media

For any twitter users that were not already aware, a press release advising that Gordon Brown (No10 Downing St) now has a twitter account. Not sure if I should worry but I’m one of the 472 people mentioned as being followed. I’m sure he’ll lose interest in me very soon!Also of interest, the announcement by Cabinet Office Minister Tom Watson about the creation of a “Power of Information Task Force”, which will drive forward the Government’s pledge to meet the rising aspirations of modern communications practice and improve engagement with citizens through social media. Lets just hope this initiative doesn’t get bogged down by the usual bureaucracy at the heart of Government. We live in hope!
