Latest Tech Advances On the Hill

If bipartisanship can't happen on the floor, at least it can happen online. A Democratic communications firm and a Republican survey research firm have joined forces, along with a tech company LocaModa, to launch a new social media tool.

Left-leaning SKDKnickerbocker and right-leaning McLaughlin & Associates have launched LocaModa Red and Blue. Politicians can use the tool to have a conversation over Twitter on a single message board and reach audiences in specific locations. Red message boards reach Republican audiences, while blue ones are for Democrats.

In other Hill tech news, the House Democratic intranet has streamlined how it organizes organizations' positions on bills, according to a Monday announcement from Minority Whip Steny Hoyer. The intranet, called DemCom, now pulls in organizations' positions on every single House bill from the POPVOX system.
