Greens overtake Lib Dems on Twitter – Pride’s Purge

Tom Pride asks: Isn’t social media supposed to be really important these days? [Yes, they are]

If so, it might be relevant that the Green Party has just today overtaken the Liberal Democrats with the number of its followers on Twitter:

greens vs libdems


So the Lib Dems might be looking at not being just the 4th party behind UKIP, but 5th behind the Greens too.

Oh Nick, what have you done?

    “Nothing” might be a suitable answer to your question.

    Interestingly, UKIP support on twitter is much lower. I will take this as meaning the Green Party are now bigger than UKIP and are the UK’s third party.*

    * Of course it actually just means there is a higher ratio of intelligent, left-wing people on twitter; only the trolls and celeb followers support UKIP.

    Actually, the SNP are the 3rd largest political party, so that means that the lib/dems would be behind them, then Ukip and then the greens.
