New Fla. Gov. Scott Holds Twitter Town Hall

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - New Florida Gov. Rick Scott is tweeting
to his constituents, answering a long list of questions in 140
characters or less.

The Republican governor was sitting in his office Thursday using
Twitter for the first time.

He's choosing and answering as many questions he can for 30
minutes.

He said as he began, "You have to figure out ways to communicate with everybody."

Scott's Twitter account is (at)FLGovScott.

Questioners are using the hashtag (pound)flgov.

The first question was about how the state can compete with the
private sector for the best employees if benefits erode.

His response, "make sure the retirement benefits are secure and
other benefits are fair."
