C-SPAN rocking the social media

C-SPAN will broadcast live video of the transfer of power in House on its Facebook Page today. They’re also doing the State of the Union address later this month. Story at Mashable:

C-SPAN’s Twitter page now includes an updated list of Congress members who use Twitter in an official capacity, as well as a new list of Congressional reporters who tweet.

C-SPAN is also expanding its online coverage in other areas. The Congressional Chronicle website is set up to provide full video archives for each member of Congress, and gives users a chance to look into members’ bios, votes, committee memberships and campaign finances. Those accessing the site can even search timelines of sessions and share videos from floor debates and hearings. The network also has a C-SPAN Radio iPhone app.

Whew! We should be doing all of that here at Legislature.com but that’s going to require a major break-through in cloning technology. Why yes, we would love to have some volunteers.
