Some of you already know that I have a serious addiction to the micro-blogging platform Twitter. And I am hoping that our friends and allies attending the Climate Change Conference in Poland this week and next can keep all of us not lucky enough to go informed on the happenings through a #poznan Twitter feed.

For those of you not familiar with Twitter, but would like to maybe give it a try at the Poznan Climate Change Conference.

Here’s some simple instructions:

1. Sign up for an account by going here.

2. Once you’re signed up, you can do all sorts of things like add friends (you can add me by going here and hitting “follow”), customize your page, but most importantly you can start twittering, meaning you can easily update people in very short messages about what you’re doing. Hence the label “micro-blogging.”

3. And for the Poznan conference, everytime you update all of us on the latest happenings be sure to add this: “#poznan” to your message. If you do that and everyone elses does that we end up with a nice big interconnected Poznan instant update system on Twitter that you can find by going here.

And it looks like this:

So let’s get that #poznan Twitter feed up and going!

The government still contains four ministers who criticised “government-subsidised green technology” back in 2012, but one of them seems to have changed his mind about state intervention since then, and there are some new environmentally-friendly faces around too.
