DIGITAL MARKETING NEWS: Omobono launches election Twitter feed

Digital communications agency Omobono is launching a Twitter feed to serve as a channel for British businesses to comment on the campaign policies and platforms of the main UK political parties throughout the 2010 General Election.

The @2010election feed will host discussions, videos and links, as contributed by its active followers, in an effort to provide a hub for election updates and the effect candidate parties may have on businesses.

Francesca Brosan, chair of Omobono and member of the CBI Committee in the East of England, says, "Businesses large and small are disenfranchised from the political process. Twitter has emerged as the channel that politicians take notice of."

Ben Dansie, CEO of Omobono added, "We intend to use Twitter to tell them, loud and clear, what businesses want. We encourage businesses across the country to join the conversation and voice their opinions on policies that concern them."

Businesses that want to join should visit http://twitter.com/2010election or email Kayley Brooks, Kayley@omobono.co.uk
