The Texas House of Representatives now has its own twitter account, @TexasHouse, to call its own. The Texas House Chamber saw Governor Perry and other state officials having all the fun on twitter, not to mention Rep. Aaron Peña the “El Rey” of twitter.
According to the Texas House Administration Committee the account may be used to notify the public about updates to the Texas of Representatives website, including,
- A tweet when the chamber is in session, adjourned or stands at ease.
- A tweet when committee video archives are updated with a new meeting.
- A tweet when a member’s press release is submitted to the web site.
The House web administrator will maintain @TexasHouse and the tweets will be sent out through an automated process. Although innovative @TexasHouse will be pretty dry and most likely not be breaking any news. Keep following your favorite elected officials or the #txlege hashtag for breaking news and updates.
