Jersey's chief minister has been using Twitter to answer islander's questions.

Senator Ian Gorst said this is first time a head of Jersey's government has used the social network in this way.

The session saw islanders ask why electors should vote for Senator Gorst, why the States use Island Home as the anthem and whether the States would subsidise electric cars.

Senator Gorst joined Twitter in March and has more than 800 followers.
