Lobbying Twitter Style

Sen. Grassley’s tweets have been in the news recently.  According to this article, at least one group is using Twitter to lobby the Senator on healthcare.

Despite no direct response from Grassley, Andrew Mertens of Change That Works Iowa was encouraged that the senator had been talking about health care throughout the day. During the afternoon, Grassley tweeted: “Rite now in bipartisan closed meeting on HealthCareReform.”

Late Monday, Grassley’s office issued a statement saying he appreciates what Change That Works Iowa is doing.

“It is using Twitter in a similar fashion to how Sen. Grassley uses Twitter — as another way to communicate with Iowans and make representative government work,” press secretary Beth Levine said.
