Social media making politics 'more accessible'

MHK warns some comments can be misconstrued

Comments made on social media are easily misconstrued, according to Lawrie Hooper.

The Ramsey MHK believes platforms such as Facebook and Twitter allow politicians to become more accessible to the public.

However, he's keen to stress how some things can become lost in translation.

Mr Hooper says talking to someone in person is still the most effective way of getting a political point across.
