Boris Johnson will be communicating “live and direct” with voters via his brand new Twitter account. The Mayor of London and co have been tweeting since May 2008 via @MayorofLondon, but Boris’s new account @BorisJohnson will update his followers from the campaign trail as he prepares to return to MPhood in the safe Conservative seat of Uxbridge and South Ruislip.
