(BBC): More than 100 British Members of Parliament are using the social networking site Twitter to communicate with voters, a survey suggests. Tweetminster, which monitors politicians’ use of Twitter, said more now used it than wrote their own blogs. It found that, of 111 MPs tweeting, 65 were Labour, 23 were Liberal Democrats and 16 were Conservatives. Across the UK, London had the highest number of MPs on Twitter – 57 – followed by south-east England, on 40, and south-west England, on 37.
