Print HTML Despite his memorable declaration that "too many twits (sic) might make a twat" (a line most recently used to scold Tory MP Aidan Burley), David Cameron is reportedly poised to join Twitter. In today's Telegraph, Benedict Brogan writes: There was a time when David Cameron thought Twitter was for t—s, but that was before the social media network became a turbo-charged means of shaping public and media opinion. Now it turns out that Twitter is for him, and Downing Street will shortly be introducing @DavidCameronLeader, or something similar, which will bring us the daily thoughts of the Prime Minister. The official No 10 account, which pumps out Government news and details of what Mr Cameron is up to, has more than two million subscribers, but cannot be used to make political points. The PM’s advisers, who are frustrated by hostility in the media and indifference among broadcasters, say Twitter will allow him to reach voters directly with his version of the Government’s successes and failures. The entire media has just set its collective watch in anticipation of the moment the PM fulfils his own prophecy and becomes, yes, "a twat". › The Mitchell saga is becoming ever more toxic for the Tories David Cameron will reportedly join Twitter "to reach voters directly".
