You can’t be active in politics and public affairs these days without having more than a passing interest in social media – from local campaigns to regime change, Twitter and Facebook have had a hand in driving political change across the globe in recent years.
So who’s got it sussed in the West Midlands? With up to three major elections headed our way in the year of elected mayors, public sector cuts, police commissioners and economic woes, politicians are increasingly fighting their battles online.
RJF Public Affairs follows more than 100 politicians, journos, business figures and campaigners as a way of keeping our ear to the ground for the current political buzz. We thought we’d use the popular PeerIndex service to rank our ‘TweetPol’ list as we call it.
We’ll make no comment on the rankings for the moment – but feel free to have your say in the comments below.
