Infographic: Which federal politicians are tweeting?

I’m continuing to work on statistics around government agencies and politicians who use Twitter in Australia.

Next week I’ll provide detailed statistics on agencies, however given the date of the next Federal election was announced this week, I thought I’d provide a little more information on which of our politicians are tweeting, using the infographic below.

Interestingly while the Government is slightly better represented on Twitter than the oppositions (when including Independents and Greens), the shadow Ministry is better represented than the Ministry, particularly Shadow Parliamentary Secretaries (effectively junior Ministers) who are far likelier to use Twitter than their counterparts.

More statistics are available in my post last week and via my Google spreadsheet, which can be accessed via this post:
