Capitol Tweets

Capitol Tweets

At 100 million monthly active users, Twitter has sparked much commentary about its revolutionary impact on information-sharing, reporting and brand management. Capitol Tweets, a study released by Edelman’s D.C. office, explores a narrow impact of Twitter: its role in the democratization of political communication and use among U.S. members of Congress. Through a partnership with the social media analytics tool Simply Measured, Edelman collected and analyzed Twitter data from 89 U.S. Ssnators and 367 U.S. representatives across a 112-day period.
