Are tweets government records?

Increasingly public officials are using social networking for communicating government business to their constituents.  This raises the question about whether these communications are now public records subject to laws about archiving such information.  Its not clear that municipalities, government agencies and the like have considered this issue.

One site, “govliv” offers to track and store such documents – for a price.
