I created the network among those Twitter users who started to use a new hashtag on Twitter called #FedTweets. This a conversation that was started in preparation for GSA’s webinar on January 26, 2012 (http://www.howto.gov/training/classes/engaging-audiences-with-Twitter).

Right now it’s clearly a closed network and messages are not widely distributed.

I will recreate this network again tomorrow after the seminar and it will be interesting to see if more users pick up on the use of the hashtag and become part of the conversation.
