Here are the Democratic Legislators’ Twitter Handles

Here’s a list of the Democratic NJ legislators on Twitter (on the jump page).

TwitterThere are a lot of reasons you might want to follow some of these folks. Follow your own reps. Follow people who are advocating (or working against) bills you care about. Follow committee chairs. Follow Wiz and Loretta, the co-chairs of the SCI investigating the GWB scandal. Follow Steve Sweeney. That guy wants to be your governor. And every Thursday, he answers a handful of questions people tweet him with hashtag #AskSenPres. Gun advocates and right-wingers have dominated those questions since he started that. You might have other things to engage him on. Some of these folks – Norcross, Watson Coleman, Greenstein, Chivukula – are running for Congress. That’s a reason to watch what they say.

Personally, I find it fun to speculate who’s maintaining their own Twitter feed and who might be passing that on to a staffer (tipoff might be more formal, distant language, staff-like language, but maybe not).

There’s a lot of variety in how robust these accounts are. You’ll see. Maybe if you tweet at some of these folks they’ll perk up and realize somebody’s reading them. I noticed some of these accounts need profiles, and some others could benefit with a website link.

Next up, soon as I can do it, will be the GOP legislators. Below – whose Twitter feeds do you think are the most interesting?

Here are the Democratic Legislators’ Twitter Handles

Steve Sweeney answers a few questions via Twitter every Thursday. Use hashtag #AskSenPres anytime during the week; he answers a handful of issues on Thursdays. Gun advocates and right wingers have dominated those questions since he started that; you might have other things to ask him.

Some of them are not kept very current, and some legislators really need to add profiles and website links to those profiles

Who doesn’t tweet, speculate whose social media staff is written & posted by staff (the tipoff might be more formal, distant language, but maybe not). You can follow your own legislators (yes, I’m working on a list of GOP legislators next). But you might also want to follow or tweet to somebody advocating (or working against) legislation you care about. And there are non-legislative reasons to follow some people. SSome of these folks are running for Congress – Don Norcross, Linda Greenstein, Bonnie Watson Coleman, Upendra Chivukula.
