A recent blog published by London School of Economics suggests that UK think tanks are not exploiting the full potential of Twitter as part of their work.  According to the blog, only a minority of UK think tanks use Twitter and where it is used, it is employed mainly by younger men (who also work as journalists, commentators or bloggers) and in ways that fail to take advantage of the opportunities to exchange ideas and provoke discussion.  This, the blog argues, may be why think tanks are not reaching out to broader audiences or to engage the wider public in topical debates as a means of promoting their ideas and arguments.
