DCI Group has a fantastic new web tool out called Digital America
. It links you to the Facebook and Twitter feeds of state lawmakers, allowing you to be able to both keep track of your state-level politicians and have another way of trying to contact them. Using the 2010 Census information, it provides a bunch of other interesting statistics as well. Of the 7,381 state legislators in the nation, 761 (10%) are on Twitter and 2,931 (40%) are on Facebook; correspondingly, 40% of Americans are on Facebook while only 1% is on Twitter. 49/50 governors are on Facebook-- only West Virginia's Earl Ray Tomblin is not, but he's new and probably will be soon. The state with the most legislators on Facebook is Washington; the state with the least is New Mexico. Most Twitter-users belongs to Nevada, while the least is Utah. It's a convenient (and cool) tool that shows how social networking is being utilized by politics in America.
