Malcolm Turnbull a-twitter

Good on him for getting on Twitter. Politicians need to get onto the social networking because it is a thing of our time and you don't understand the limits and advantages of various social networks unless you actually use them. They can be quite handy tools. They can be powerful. They have their pitfalls you need to learn to negotiate...and then you need to compare and understand which ones operate positively and which ones do not. We have got pollies and Facebook and MySpace. Facebook works very effectively in terms of its capacity to organise and deliver information. Not enough use is made of it. Twitter can deliver information fast, very fast. We need people who are good at this. Like it or not, social networking is 2008.
