Osborne: Breaking the Budget

Sponsored post

To mark the 2013 budget George Osborne joined Twitter, with his first tweet being a picture of himself at his desk with his red box. What gem will he offer up this year? A picture of his cat? Another burger?  Or perhaps something entirely new?

As Osborne speaks on Wednesday, around him MPs in the Chamber will be tweeting their instant reaction to what he is saying. Journalists will be picking out key announcements and offering immediate analysis before the Chancellor has even sat down.

Or perhaps before he’s even stood up… (remember this?)

This is for good reason too: for many observers, social media represents the only medium through which they will receive updates on the Budget Statement – making it vital for MPs and commentators to spread their messages, viewpoints and campaign slogans as the battleground for the 2015 election heats up.

It is now impossible to ignore what is being said on social media if you want to stay on top of the latest events. For many journalists and politicians Twitter is now the place they choose to break news, before they’ve published it anywhere else.

It has been our aim developing Yatterbox to get the key social media posts (from politicians and over 20,000 UK journalists) to you as quickly as possible. It is free to sign up and create alerts tailored to your brand and its key issues. For more in-depth research you can also search through our database or download analytical reports.

Sign up before Wednesday and follow the drama live with Yatterbox – the easiest way to track what politicians and journalists are saying online.
