Our colleague Mark Senak’s study on the use of Twitter by members of the US Congress has been making some waves in the media across the Atlantic in recent days. The main headline being that the Republicans are beating the Democrats in their use of the tool. We shall have to see what this means when it comes to the mid-terms.

21% of MEPs use twitter – according to us and someone else

Counting the number of MEPs that use online tools to communicate is not a bad way to start your company’s blog and attract traffic. We should know as our post that claimed that 11% of MEPs blog is still one of our most visited posts to this day. E-marketing newcomers Digimahti have followed our lead and list 115 157 tweeting MEPs. Not an insignificant number I am sure you’ll agree.

At 21% of the total members of Parliament,  it’s exactly the same percentage that our MEP digital survey suggested used Twitter when we polled them in May this year! Digimahti of course notes that ‘using’ Twitter and having a Twitter account are very different. Our digital survey suggested that only 13% use it ‘regularly’, while 8% use it ‘occasionally’.

We’ll be looking to run our digital survey again next year with the new Parliament to see if that number improves.

Manufacturing crunch time?

Manufacturing. You know, making stuff.

Our DC based friend Pat Cleary is a believer in it. With giants like GM falling to their knees on both sides of the Atlantic and export economies in Asia still feeling the after effects of the bout of cold turkey in US consumption he’s picked a great time to seek to start a global online community to discuss the issues facing manufacturing the world over.

ManufacturingCrunch endeavors to be the first-of-its-kinds global online manufacturing community, a place where manufacturers — and those who care about manufacturing — can come to debate, discuss or share information on issues of mutual interest. Interested parties can find out more at www.MfgCrunch.com. The platform already has representation from both sides of the Atlantic. On the site there is a Google news feed on manufacturing, a Twitter feed and two daily news feeds — one from the US and one from the EU — on manufacturing. You can also follow Manfacturing Crunch on Twitter (www.twitter.com/MfgCrunch)
