Benicia City Council Candidate Mark Hughes Takes to Twitter
Benicia, CA city council member Mark Hughes has launched his re-election campaign with a twist, or to be more precise, with a "tweet."
Twitter, often referred to as a short messaging or micro-blogging tool allows people with similar interests to connect as followers and receive each others posts – or tweets. These posts on Twitter have a limit of up to 140 characters. The brevity this affords is one its main attractions as a communications tool. “What I like about using Twitter during the campaign,” said Mark, “is the opportunity to connect with Benicians I may not have been able to meet in an easy and straightforward way. I look forward to reading their tweets on ideas, suggestions and concerns, and to share some of my perspectives as well.”
Mark’s username on Twitter is, “Mark4Benicia,”
