    I've been fascinated by the use of Twitter by politicians in recent years, and especially during the current election campaign.

    Since I was already doing some work with the Twitter API, I decided to grab a feed of the tweets made by our politicians and see what kind of statistics I could generate from them.

    I put this website together to show the results: Australian MP Tweets - Statistics about Australian politicians using Twitter

    I thought perhaps someone might find it interesting, even if not all that useful in the grand scheme of things :D
