Knesset Adds Twitter to its New Media

The Communications Division of the Knesset is adding a Twitter account to its other new media to update Internet surfers on what's going on in the plenum and the committees. The account, operated by the staff of the Knesset's Website, is the word Haknesset in Hebrew letters, the Latin-letter possibility being @KnessetIL.

The other new media are a Facebook page, a branded YouTube page and a smartphone application. They parallel similar developments in the Prime Minister's Office.
