Report: Lebanese politicians jump on Twitter bandwagon

Social-networking website Twitter has extended its appeal to Lebanese politicians, with former prime minister Saad Hariri using the online platform to reach out to his supporters, Lebanon's English-language Daily Star reported on Thursday.
Hariri - who tweets under the Twitter handle @HaririSaad - used the website this past week for daily live question and answer sessions. Hariri was able to answer question from his followers on issues ranging from the UN Special Tribunal on his father's assassination to his favorite films, the Daily Star reported.
The casual sessions are underlined by the nature of how Twitter connects its users, allowing the heavyweight politician to even begin one session with the informal greeting: “hi everyone hope you had a great day, i am online lets [sic] get started," according to the report.
