Abstract

Over the last year, the explosion of Twitter as a communication medium— thanks in large part to the Iran elections—has crept into all walks of life, from celebrities and bloggers to local and national politicians. This report will focus specifically on eight members of the British Conservative (Tory) Party, taking note of their tweeting habits--over two data sets--in regards to both content and consistency.
