Boris trends on Twitter

There was an overwhelming response to Boris Johnson's first ever Twitter Q&A session. The #AskBoris hashtag, used to submit questions, trended in London and reached more than 700,000 people.

Questions ranged from the personal to the political during the half hour session - with transport and cycling two popular topics.

Speaking after the session, Mayor Boris said, "Twitter is a very good discipline because you've got to boil it down to 140 characters and try to say as much as possible.

"It's very effective. I did enjoy it. There is something about the atmosphere of Twitter that is interesting. Although it's fairly abusive in parts it is also friendly and there is a prevailing positive mood about it."
