Campaigning on #LabourDoorstep…with Twitter

The Alex cartoon in today’s Torygraph shows a way of using Twitter on the campaign trail.

And  as a theatre technician, I’ve been a long time follower of the humerous strips of Harry Venning [I’ve even got an original Hamlet one on my wall at home] and it seems he knows a thing or two when it comes to campaigning on the doorstep.

Earlier this month [14 April 2010] , the Guardian published this Clare in the Community strip in which she teaches what to do when someone from a rival party comes knocking on your door.

We in the Exeter Labour Party are all trying to beat the record of our Chair who kept the Tory candidate on his doorstep for 20 minutes! I’ve managed 10 mins on the phone and my wife another 10 at a street stall – but did leave the candidate arguing with a local Tory candidate. Result!
