5 Twitter Thought Leaders on Government

5 Twitter Thought Leaders on Government
I believe the following 5 people could be considered thought leaders for government-based social media, and Twitter in particular:
  1. Mark Drapeau (@cheeky_geeky) – Dr. Mark D. Drapeau is the 2006-08 AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow at the Center for Technology and National Security Policy of the National Defense University, Fort Lesley J. McNair, U.S. Department of Defense, Washington DC.  Mark writes many articles and blog posts about new media and government.
  2. GovTwit (@govtwit) - GovTwit is a website that helps filter U.S. Government Twitter accounts.  They are also active networking and having conversations on Twitter.
  3. Philip Nowak (@philipnowak) - Philip Nowak is a very active social media and runs the blog Social Media Unraveled.  As the social media director for Thomas Castillo, he is very active in the political world.
  4. Bill Schrier (@billschrier) - Bill Scrier is the Chief Technology Officer for the City of Seattle.  He has been actively engaging on Twitter for some time and runs the blog Chief Seattle Geek.  He will probably be a good resource for local politicians.
  5. Jeffrey Levy (@levyj413) – Jeffrey Levy is the web manager for the EPA.  He has also been very active on Twitter and  certainly knows a lot of elected officials on Twitter.  He has done a great  job of being in touch with “government 2.0,” which has pushed the EPA forward with their use of social media.
