David Cameron will soon get a Twitter account, reports Daily Telegraph

Downing Street will soon be introducing a Twitter account for David Cameron, according to Benedict Brogan of the Telegraph.

Downing Street will shortly be introducing @DavidCameronLeader, or something similar, which will bring us the daily thoughts of the Prime Minister.

The official No 10 account, which pumps out Government news and details of what Mr Cameron is up to, has more than two million subscribers, but cannot be used to make political points.

The PM’s advisers, who are frustrated by hostility in the media and indifference among broadcasters, say Twitter will allow him to reach voters directly with his version of the Government’s successes and failures.
