US House and Senate on Twitter

My impression is that both the houses of legislature adopt technology very fast and have lead to success of companies. RIM ( research in motion) owes a lot to its success to the adoption by both the US senate and House of Representatives.

If you are a Twitter user you can "follow" @HouseFloor you can get tweets directly from the US House of Reps. The US Senate Tweets as @SenateFloor

To follow either of these Twitter feeds you can sign up for Twitter and then search for them using the search box on the right of the Twitter Home Page. 'Follow" measn that once you add them to your following list you will receive their updates on your Twitter homepage.

I am happy to see these legislative bodies embracing technology very fast.
