The New Hampshire House of Representatives is now on Twitter, the social networking site where short messages can be seen describing news events and other developments taking place in the largest state legislative body in America.
“We are excited to use this newer form of communication to continue in our efforts toward openness and transparency in government,” said House Speaker Terie Norelli, D-Portsmouth.
Among the items expected to be posted are announcements of upcoming sessions, votes by committees on whether to recommend a bill pass or not, when sessions begin – with links to live streaming video, and information updating readers about natural disasters or weather events.
Readers can sign up at no charge to “follow” the New Hampshire House at twitter.com/NHHouseofReps. Readers have the option, too, to have new postings sent directly to their cell phones.
