Twitter is a great way for those in the political world to bring a touch of colour and personality to their otherwise grey and suited image. While for some the site has caused headaches, these savvy 10 know how to get the best from social media.
Some may not be individuals, but are key accounts for some of the most important government organisations affecting the world of technology.
Tom Watson, Labour MP and technology hero @Tom_watson
The hero of the select committee investigating phone hacking and a fierce critic of the Digital Economy Act, Tom Watson is an absolute must follow for any discerning Twitter user.
Neelie Kroes, vice president of the Digital Agenda in the EU @NeelieKroesEU
The poster girl for the European digital revolution, Neelie Kroes provides a constant flow of information linking to her latest news and speeches, personal reaction to events, lots of retweets and even invitations to join her on Google+.
Robert Halfon, MP for Harlow @halfon4harlowMP
A self-confessed lover of mobile technology, Robert Halfon frequently wades into key tech debates, notably around the ICO and Google Street View, and his Twitter account is a lively, engaging feed to follow.
John Prescott, former Labour Party deputy Leader and 'cyber warrior' @johnprescott
Being booted out of office last year didn't dampen John Prescott's enjoyment of Twitter, and the former Labour deputy head honcho is one of the most active politicos on the site, full of links, retweets and outspoken comments.
Ed Vaizey, internet minister @edvaizey
Ed Vaizey's feed is a nice mix of toe-the-line political updates and more personal, on the scene updates from events. He retweets regularly, and even replies to questions put to him on the site, so you could ask him why the government is so keen on the Digital Economy Act.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport @DCMS
A heady mix of updates relating to far-reaching technology proposals from the government, speeches by ministers, and the occasional link to a new museum being opened.

Lots of news and updates on the government's work promoting the UK's business credentials at home and abroad, including technology sectors such as telecoms, start-ups and even Tech City in Silicon Roundabout.
