How US Senators are using Twitter

US senators, much like other politicians across the globe, all use Twitter in a very similar way. Therefore, common themes and the types of tweets are similarly consistent for the 100 senators.

Self-promotion has become a big part of social media for politicians. Alerting their followers to upcoming TV interviews and public appearances is at the forefront of how the Senate use Twitter. A primary collection of uses is for wider promotion. Promo of their own views, beliefs, policy and their party’s is frequent. Reinforcing what they stand for is what receives an audience reaction, and the tweeting and mentioning of news, meetings they attend and what they want to change, amplify their stance. Also, senators can spread community messages and highlight action points in their state.

Since the election of a new US President, senators have taken to Twitter to praise or rebuke the Trump administration.

The Importance of Twitter for US Politics

The adoption of Twitter as a political campaign aide is not a new social phenomenon.

Social media is without a doubt a vital tool for any politician. In addition, the evident success of Obama’s 2008 campaign and other notable politicians from all over the world effectively turned to Twitter as a platform to assist their campaign and secure a larger fanbase. The same can be done for the members of the US Senate.

Donald Trump was vocal on Twitter and his unique approach to social media saw worldwide news coverage. A collection of more than 40 million followers means his tweets have the ability to reach more users and be seen by more people courtesy of retweets. As a result, the widespread of his tweets allow more people to engage, form an opinion and possibly the thing that matters most is deciding whether or not they agree with this person. Ultimately, in a political scenario, this could very much lead to electoral votes.

Furthermore, social media continues to grow and become a fundamental tool for politicians to use effectively to assist their campaigns.
