P.S. As we mentioned in a previous post, the utility of Twitter is still not clear to us. We do find Daily Show host John Stewart’s opinion about Twitter quite humorous: “They’re struggling because they confused new with good.”

Krispijn, Thanks for the idea - we think we've cracked it and you'll now find a feed of all the MEP Tweets on our blog's sidebar. As we see more MEPs a-twittering we shall of course add them. James
