We’ve been following the growth of twitter, the social networking and microblogging service, in the govt info arena. Evidently, twitter use is growing at an amazing rate (422% in the past 12 months!). And now there’s the GovTwit directory of Twitter IDs and links to official government blogs and URLs noted in Twitter bios! You can even follow GovTwit on twitter to get immediate updates on new govt entities joining the phenomenon.
If you’re not sure what the heck twitter is, go to the Twitter FAQ or [w:Twitter] wikipedia article. Several of us used twitter to good effect during DLC last month to carry on a back-channel discussion of the presentations and council meetings.
