Three friends of the Adam Smith Institute are launching a new libertarian organization tomorrow, the Liberty League. They aim for it to be a network for grassroots libertarian and classical liberal people to coordinate events in the UK, and has a board of advisors from various UK and US libertarian groups.
They’re hoping to use Twitter as their main mouthpiece at the moment, which I think is a great idea. It’s a useful medium because it allows for very fast – and concise – conversations with friends. I’m not going to write a long post about the wonders of social media for grassroots campaigning organizations, but obviously being able to spread information and communicate so widely so cheaply is a very good thing for groups like the Liberty League. (And, of course, the Adam Smith Institute.)
Update: I forgot to mention the group's Facebook page. A sign of the shifting relevance of social networking websites?
