I don't know if you have notice lately, but the Commission is making a real effort to communicate to the citizens. Of course, there were the European Elections, but it seems that DG Communication is trying to go beyond for once.
On the traditional media, it seems that only Euronews (obviously) seems to pay any attention to European themes. Don't get confuse, Euronews does not belong to any EU Institutions... though it would not be a bad thing to have a European Public Channel.
But it is in the new media that the effort is concentrated. We even have our own You Tube Channel. We are totally cool :p)
Next you will be able to follow your favorite commissioners on Twitter!
