The Lords Digital Chamber extracts and aggregates the social media activity of members of the House of Lords, political parties and groups in the Lords and related feeds. It covers Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and blogs.
We've set the system up to allow users to interact with posts directly, creating new ways to communicate with members of the Lords and see their conversations in real time.
Updates appear at the time they are posted on any particular social network. Our topic system lets you filter posts through different subject areas.
There is no editorial intervention in the feeds, and we've selected the feeds based on Lords who are currently using social media and blogs. If you are aware of any missing feeds please let us know by emailing email@example.com, we'll get the feed added in as soon as possible. For more information please see the Disclaimer.
The Lords Digital Chamber is currently in beta, and we'd really appreciate any feedback you have, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any suggestions.

The House of Lords is the second chamber of the UK Parliament. It is independent from, and complements the work of, the elected House of Commons.
The Lords shares the task of making and shaping laws and checking and challenging the work of the government.
Currently, there are about 760 members who are eligible to take part in the work of the House of Lords. The majority are life peers. Many members (peers) have a political background, some don't. They represent a wide range of professions – in medicine, law, business, the arts, science, sports, education, the armed forces, diplomacy and public service.
