Following the European Council #euco discussion

Are we going to develop a consensus on (new) Twitter hashtags concerning EU institutions and activities, I wondered in the latest blog post on this theme: European Council: Continued #euco discussion on Twitter (8 February 2011).

Inviting comments, there were also a few remarks about the European Union and the use of social media by European leaders, journalists and citizens.

@AnttiTimonen, a press adviser of the EPP group, admitted that there is much noise regarding the #EP hashtag and seemed supportive of #europarl.

From the viewpoint of the European Union #EU is another hashtag which tends to drown.

We'll have to check later to see if there is going to be more of a #euco discussion on Twitter and blogs.

P.S. In addition to The Week in Bloggingportal, the blog has a new feature: The Month in Bloggingportal. The continually growing multilingual aggregator brings you the posts from 743 Euroblogs, part of an emerging European public online space. Keep up to date and improve your language skills!

P.S. 2: On my Euroblogs I want to discuss legal and political issues relevant to European enterprises, jobs, employers and employees, consumers and citizens, especially in cross-border situations. Details of internal market reform (Single Market Act) and the Europe 2020 strategy (EU2020 flagship initiatives) are going to be among the recurring themes. Hopefully my blogs succeed in educating and guiding towards relevant sources. For me the blogs offer disciplined study as basic training for my teaching and legal counseling activities. My blogs are: upstream Grahnlaw (in English), Grahnblawg (in Swedish) and Eurooppaoikeus (in Finnish), as well as usually downstream the trilingual Grahnlaw Suomi Finland. If you are interested in European business, politics or law, we can get acquainted through Twitter @RalfGrahn or Facebook.
