Udall Catches Up to the Rest of the World Online

Better late than never, New Mexico's junior U.S. Senator is going online and accepting social media as a proven communications tool.

U.S. Senator Tom Udall, D-N.M. today launched his official presence on the social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr. Udall’s outreach on social media will provide constituents with the opportunity to engage in a two-way dialogue with his office and stay up-to-date on legislation in Washington and upcoming events in New Mexico.

Udall said:
More and more New Mexicans have started using social media to connect, and I'm happy to say I do too. Using outlets like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr in the Senate will help me reach out in new ways by providing an inside look at my work in Washington and by providing a forum for conversation on the issues that we face together.
Udall’s first Tweet linked to his Tuesday speech on the Senate floor, sharing the stories of New Mexicans in need of healthcare reform .

His Communications Director Marissa Padilla promises the social media sites will provide regular postings on Udall’s work in Washington and New Mexico along with video and photo content.
