Now you can search the governor’s tweets

The state announced today the opening of a new searchable archive of social media by and about government officials, according to WRAL:

The State Archives of North Carolina is going “social,” beginning the capture of Twitter tweets, Facebook posts and the like as made by and about public officials with the help of Durham startup venture ArchiveSocial.

A pilot project was unveiled Tuesday through which searchers at the archives can find what’s been said and posted about those in government, such as Gov. Bev Perdue, and – perhaps most importantly – what elected and appointed officials might say through their social media accounts.

The archive, which  is live, will hopefully ease a backlog of public records requests – and perhaps change the tweeting behavior of many?
