The applicability of Web 2.0 as an e-Government tool is still a fully unexploited area due to the software novelty in this regard and the lack of commitment of public bodies. The current paper sets out to offer a solution to acknowledge information of public interest that might be of use to an e-Citizen. Currently, social networks have proven useful in keeping in touch with friends, research, collaboration and political activism. Data mining through social network is a relatively new subject, which has been intensely approached by researchers as of late. The results presented in the current paper have been obtained using a crawler on Twitter.
