“How digital is the 2015 UK election?” asks web culture journalist Aleks Krotoski

In the latest Tech Weekly podcast for the Guardian, Aleks Krotoski, an established social media and web cultural journalist, investigates the extent to which social media and digital strategies will play in winning the main political parties crucial votes.

Aleks is joined by an expert panel – including the Guardian’s leader writer Anne Perkins, community producer Elena Cresci, web editor Jonathan Haynes, and the director of research for We Are Social, Paul Greenwood – to discuss the growing importance of digital skills in election campaigns.

They look at the parties’ growing use of social media platforms to fight for marginal seats in what commentators expect to be a very close election. Which politicians get it right – and which get it wrong?
