  1. somebody on twitter worked it out last night that the three accounts cost the gov about a grand each. They tweet to about 9000 followers, who then retweet it to their followers. this works out at a few pence a message to a person, as opposed to a stamp, envelope, paper, ink and time. I would think it is a very cost effective way of communicating information and getting feedback. I wish I could find the relevant post but it has dropped off my timeline and I am not very good at sums… I am sure someone with a better brain than the telegraph could do the math.
    Its just showing the power of twitter, rational analysis and criticism of sloppy journos.
