Over the past few weeks Twitter has been a focus in the downfall of governments from Egypt to Tunisia, it is credited with helping advocacy networks around the world work more effectively and it seems that every celebrity is 'tweeting' their way to infamy.
I've been 'tweeting' in recent months to keep people up to date with my work at a local and state level and to hear what people think. I encourage you to follow my tweets and have your say on the issues that are important to you.
Twitter is a free 'micro-blogging' site, where people post short messages for hundreds, thousands, or even millions of people to read. It is now often where news breaks first and I have enjoyed following local and national news sources, local residents, community groups and businesses and interesting commentators and opinion makers.
If you haven't joined the social media revolution, you may like to start by signing up to Twitter. Go to www.twitter.com to sign up and search for 'CloverMoore' (no space) to follow me. Don't worry if you're not familiar with the technology - twitter provides a helpful introductory video.
