I have been doing a lot of writing on here lately about MPs in New Zealand who are using Twitter, I thought now was a good time to have a look how some politicians overseas are using Twitter. I asked a Twitter friend in the US, @gaypatriot, who is a political activist, for some suggestions on US Senators or Members of the House of Representatives who use Twitter well. He suggested looking at Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tx) and Ted Cruz (R-Tx). I also asked another Twitter friend, @Li_politico, for some suggestions. She Suggested Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Ca) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).
So over the next few weeks I will be doing some blog posts on these Congressmen and Senators. The aim is to look at what is being done overseas by people in similar positions to our MPs. I am open to any suggestions of other politicians to look at. Obviously it is not possible for me to follow everyone out there.
