Aussie pollies being invited to tweet

In an example of how the public is pushing government towards embracing the online channel, the TweetMP site has been launched to encourage tweeting by Australian politicians.

The site features a method to invite Australian Federal parliamentarians to set up a Twitter account, includes a full list of publicly tweeting MPs and their latest tweets.

There is also an API that allows MP twitter feeds to be integrated into any website - which OpenAustralia is now using.
