Researchers at the University of Maryland found that the policy of the United States use Twitter largely only to promote, according to a report in The Washington Post.

Among the more than 6 thousand updates on Twitter profiles of Congress, 80% were included in two categories: links to news and press releases have already been distributed by most search engines and news, and updates on the daily lives of politicians, such as trips or visits the supermarket. Only 7% of messages are routed directly to other people on Twitter, which demonstrates the lack of interaction with citizens.

According to the newspaper, the study attempts to determine whether social networks and, especially, Twitter, really opened a new dialogue between elected leaders and the public.
