A tale of two tweets

February 9th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Irish Politics

Yesterday as news spread on twitter about George Lee’s resignation from public office many turned to Senator Paschal Donohue for comment, he is the most followed and active FG rep using the medium.  And Paschal usually replies back to those who ask questions – it’s called conversation – something others using twitter might take note of.

It took a little while (meetings about crime in the constituency had to be attended to!) but Paschal came back and replied to comments and said the show went on.  He also let the world know he talks to Enda and Richard a lot and can get his ideas across.

And then at 1.11 am this morning after a long day on the Radio came a tweet from Lucinda Creighton TD

No word from FG front benchers including Fergus O’Dowd.  I bet in the days ahead Twittering blueshirts may get a few more followers.  Will head office send texts to them all asking for pre approval like the text HQ sent to TD’s yesterday asking for co-operation and advanced knowledge in relation to radio interviews?
