Lynne Featherstone is first MP to tweet from the House of Commons

On the basis that Lynne Featherstone was really the first MP to start Twittering (Alan Johnson’s temporary use of Twitter for his Labour Deputy Leadership bid being the half-exception), that likely means that this update from Lynne is the first Twitter update that’s been done from the benches of the House of Commons:

Conservative MP Douglas Carswell earlier this year became the first MP to blog from there.

Imagine, perhaps, a future that includes MPs blogging or posting Twitter updates as, say, the Prime Minister answers questions at PMQs. It would add a whole new perspective to the event.
