Twitter has become a big part of Canada’s political spectrum. It’s a place where Members of Parliament (MPs) share information, and listen to and engage with their communities. And since more than 80 per cent of our MPs are tweeting, we thought it would be interesting to see which tweeps they’re following.
With help from the social web experts at Twiangulate, Hill+Knowlton ranked the top 20 Twitter handles followed by Canada’s 245 MPs who are on Twitter─from news outlets and reporters to fellow MPs (and even Rick Mercer!).
*Correction: This infographic has been updated to reflect the fact that the CBC Parliamentary bureau, Don Martin and Jennifer Ditchburn are all followed by 47.3 per cent of MPs (116 of 245).
