Twitter, a social networking site that allows users to exchange short messages -- called 'tweets" -- on their activities, has been joined by a state and local government listing called GovTwit. Sponsored by BearingPoint, the site carries tweets from government entities such as the city of NapervilleIL reminding residents to clean sidewalks after winter weather, and California Gov.

Today, having more connectivity between G-C is critical. Twitter, or micro-blogging as it is being called, provides public officials with an easy, and continuous communication stream to share comments with constituents about their day's activities, important initiatives of their administration, and even use it for calls to action, all in real time. The challenge for elected officials, however, is to be brief and succinct as you are limited to a max. of 140 characters per post or "tweet".
