Twitter, Mr. Speaker

Karen Sawatzky, Librarian at Pitblado LLP in Winnipeg, points us to a post on Law Librarian Blog about Twittering in the U.S. House of Representatives. Posts to the Clerk of the House’s Current House Floor Proceedings Page are pumped out via Twitter ever five minutes or so when the House is sitting. This is the sort of thing that could really excite politics junkies.

Twitter is a “microblogging” application that we’ve talked a bit about before here on Slaw:

  • Some Folks Are A- Twitter
  • Jaiku Your Feeds
  • I don’t think Hansard is built moment by moment throughout a sitting day, so this couldn’t be used here in quite the same way.
