OurKingdom on Twitter

Follow OK on the social networking site.

I've rather belatedly set up an OurKingdom Twitter account. Until now OK regulars Anthony, Tom Ash, Tom Griffin and myself have been using our own private accounts to promote OK material, but now there is a dedicated account you can follow @OurKingdomUK.

Unlike certain ministers, we will be confining ourselves to tweeting political comment and analysis and not dispensing advice on how to improve your sexual performance (though this may be an unintended side-effect of reading OK).

ps - To stay truly connected, join the openDemocracy mothership's Facebook group, on which OK features, and it'll pump out the latest material into your News Feed.
