Twitter: Conservatives Occupy #auspol hashtag

Alex Bruns has an excellent map of the Australian Twitter follower/followee network. His analysis of hastags indicates that conservatives, especially ultra-conservatives, are dominant in the #auspol twitter tag.

It's time for progressives to even up the contest. Don't forget to add #auspol (and #ausvotes during elections) to your political tweets.
