Purple Forge (http://www.purpleforge.com) & Tweetminster (http://www.tweetminster.co.uk) today announced the availability of MyPolitics UK, creating a singular mobile portal for the British public to all the government and political party news and Twitter feeds. Combined with social networking, MyPolitics UK allows the British public to re-broadcast and share political information with their friends and colleagues using both their Facebook and Twitter social networking accounts.
“The mobile Internet is poised to overtake the personal computer as the most frequently used means of accessing information in the UK this year. With the rapid proliferation of mobile applications, and the pending release of the Apple Tablet computer, British citizens will be using mobile applications on an unprecedented scale for accessing information, and we are dedicated to building the best interactive mobile interface between the British public and its many tiers of government,” said Brian Hurley, CEO of Purple Forge.
MyPolitics UK also includes integrated, demographically enhanced survey capabilities allowing British citizens to provide feedback about their government at all levels. Media outlets and survey firms are encouraged to contact Purple Forge about posting surveys through the MyPolitics UK application to get a finger on the pulse of what the public are thinking, anytime and anywhere.
MyPolitics UK is delivered in association with Tweetminster, the top UK political web portal for tracking British politicians and their twitter feeds.
“MyPolitics UK takes Tweetminster’s data and feeds, mobilising them to deliver political engagement with parties and Government on-the-go,” said Andrew Walker, co-founder of Tweetminster. “This application is a very positive step towards making political culture in the UK more accessible. Purple Forge’s technology platform compliments the work we’ve been doing with tracking UK online political activity and sets out a clear roadmap for how mobile social media apps will develop in the future, to meet the public appetite to get more involved in the news and debates that shape the political life of the UK. ”
