Politics Publications Twitter — Snurb, 28 July 2010

Over on Fairfax’s National Times opinion site, I’ve now posted a first article examining the use of Twitter during the early election campaign – for the first week of campaigning, excluding the debate last Sunday (which I’ve examined here and here).

As with the debate, nothing much to see here yet, but there it is… I’ll also post up the full original draft of the article at our journalism group Gatewatching.org.
