Troublesome tweeting in Parliament

During a committee meeting, Liberal MP Michelle Simson tweeted that ”[Ontario MP] M.P. Del Mastro should grow up (not out)”. How did he find out? He has google alerts that tell him whenever someone googles him.

How self-absorbed would you have to be to get google alerts about yourself?

Of course, NDP MP, Charlie Angus decided to share a few words calling for a ban on MPs using Twitter, to save them making idiots of themselves.

“I believe the issue of members sitting on committee with their inane Twitters about what happens at committee demeans the work of all parliamentarians.”

But really wont people find new ways and arent there a thousand more networking sites where that came from?
