Bulletin 16/2/2017


National continues to say very little about policy on Twitter, treating social media as only social and not political.  Labour continues to attack National on child poverty and housing costs, and now also the slow speed of the UFB rollout, although it’s not entirely certain that can be pinned on the government.  Greens are very good at live-tweeting from parliament, as they question National on Child Youth and Family reforms and the Resource Management Act reforms, river quality, and other topics.  United Future, being the smallest party, has so far lacked internet savvy, but they’ve been looking to hire someone, so that might change in the coming months.

Not included here are tweets about the wildfires in Christchurch, omitted because it is probably not an election issue.
