The attempt to be inoffensive usually leads MPs on Twitter to discard the remaining elements of their personality, but this friendly New Labour MP has managed to do it while remaining informal and engaging. He communicates with constituents in a chatty, relaxed manner, is open about what he is doing, and has a sly sense of humour when discussing football. There's little mention of national politics here but as an avenue for communicating your plans and personality to local residents, it's close to setting the standard.
