Broward GOP goes silent on twitter. In an election year.

The Broward GOP wants to help re-elect Gov. Rick Scott and hang on to a few other local seats this fall, but it has opted out of one method of communication: twitter.

Some other county political committees in South Florida routinely use twitter to announce upcoming speakers, boast about their own candidates and bash politicians on the other side.

But the last tweet from the Broward Republican Executive Committee was Nov. 15.

“I asked about it this past Monday and the fellow that was working on that said he is going to be working on that,” said Tom Truex, chair of BREC. “Apparently nothing has been posted.”\

Broward has about 234,000 registered GOP voters, one of the largest contingents in the state.  The county has about 538,000 registered Democrats and 276,000 voters who registered with neither major party.

The group’s next meeting is at 7 p.m. May 19 at the Sheraton Suites Fort Lauderdale at Cypress Creek. State Rep. George Moraitis, R-Fort Lauderdale, will speak.
