Members of the Twittering classes…

WITH the addition of Simon Hamilton yesterday, there are now two Twitterers in the Assembly, the other being the PUP leader Dawn Purvis. I’ve recently signed up for the free service, after hearing Stephen Fry and Jonathan Ross witter on about it. Perhaps that makes me a Twit?! Anyway, it could turn out to be a handy service for breaking news; for example DUPonline has just posted that Nelson McCausland has been chucked out of the Stormont chamber.

UPDATE: I seem to have been inadvertantly responsible for getting the first Sinn Fein Assembly member on Twitter.
