My Twitterings

17th August, 2009

I’ve made it on a list!!!!!!!! Simply Zesty, the online PR & Social Media agency have put me on their top 50 Irish Influencers on Twitter! The full list is available here.

I’m delighted to see that I am the highest rating Irish politician at no 34 on the list, just ahead of Ciaran Cuffe from the Green Party. Have to say that I am disproportionately happy about this. I’ve been working away hard on social media for the last 12 months and it’s nice to get a bit of recognition for this. The most important thing about using media like this is make sure that you do it all yourself and then update it regularly. I use my Blackberry to do this every day.

There is no doubt that there is a steady increase in the numbers of the electorate who are using the internet to contact and track their politicians. Hope that this work does pay off come election time!
