Transport secretary tweets to young drivers
Justine Greening, transport secretary, has embraced social media by calling on young drivers to share their views on how to tackle the high price of car insurance via Twitter (proponon blog).
Working in partnership with BBC Radio One’s Newsbeat, the minister called on drivers to tweet @BBCNewsbeat using the hashtag #insurance to share their views on how prices could be decreased.
The propono blog says it’s good to see the Government using new channels of communication to gather feedback from younger voters, and that it will be interesting to see how they use social media to share the findings in the future.
The news comes in the same week as the Co-op Insurance revealed that black box technology has cut crashes among young drivers by 20%.
