The Divine Helen Duffett writes for the Total Politics Guide to Political Blogging
Not only is the multi-talented Helen Duffett busy doing all she does for Liberal Democrat Voice, although I doubt dressing up asCount Packula in a fright wig is one of her roles, she has also written a chapter of the forthcoming Total Politics Guide to Political Blogging.
Her subject was Twitter. "Do Tweets win Seats?" she asked in an opening sentence that was exactly 140 characters long. Very clever.
And while I'm on the subject, my copy of Iain Dale's Total Politics Guide to Political Blogging arrived today. I was muchly dischuffed to see that in 20 pages of the chapter Who's Who in political blogging, only 3 women were mentioned, none of them Liberal Democrats. I wouldn't get ideas above my station and think I should be in there, but what about Helen, Sara and Lynne Featherstone? Honestly!
But going back to Helen's article, it is excellent and very well researched. She's talked to all sorts of people,journalists, bloggers and MPs and her conclusions are well worth a read.
