The Department of Finance will begin tweeting when the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, rises in the House of Commons to deliver Budget 2010 on March 4th.
Links to relevant portions of the budget will be tweeted in real time.
“Our Government wants to reach out to inform Canadians of actions we are taking to support the economy,” said Minister Flaherty. “Using social media will bring our message to Canadians in a new, cost-effective and convenient way.”
Links to Finance news releases, advisories, major speeches, publications and reports will be posted for users who follow the Department.

I thought their website was an effective use of social media. Oh well. Yay. Finance.
