Who’s leading the discussion at #G8? @PortlandComms
Portland, an international communications consultancy, is currently analysing the ‘digital diplomacy’ applied in relation to the G8 meeting. Portland has in particular been looking at how the topics Tax, Trade and Transparency are being dealt with on Twitter, and how different actors take part. Read their analysis here.
I’m honoured to be mentioned in the following:
‘Think tanks and NGOs are successfully shaping the online discussion on transparency. The Centre for Global Development, which features across the G8 themes, comes top with Oxfam and the EnoughFoodIf campaign also featuring.
From outside the G8, a special mention should go to Zitto Zuberi Kabwe (@zittokabwe), shadow finance minister in Tanzania. With close to 55,000 followers, his retweets and interactions on the G8 agenda make him a surprise addition to the top influencers on tax and transparency.
