Social networks will become the fundamental way we communicate with our governments, Twitter co-founder Evan Williams has told the BBC.
He said that Twitter will be expanding into regions where only the simplest of technology is available, such as in Haiti or parts of India.

He also added there are still no plans to charge end users to use the site.
