Premier Colin Barnett is a blank when it come to Social Media on twitter.
Barnett does not even have a twitter account, that is public knowledge at least, for communicating with WA voters on any matter.
It has been rumoured that Liberal party members have been discouraged from using twitter media in the WA 2013 election.
It is possible that past election gaffs have made a ultra cautious approach and the infamous canal from the Northwest to Perth still in advisors minds.
A further indication of the government being out of touch in regard to Social Media may be the appearance that they had to be dragged yelling and screaming to get FESA on twitter.
Another possible scenario is that his current advisors with mainstream media backgrounds are still coming to understand Social Media and non mainstream media that cannot be controlled.
On twitter participation we labeled McGowan a lightweight, however Barnet comes up blank.
