TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — New Florida Gov. Rick Scott is tweeting to his constituents, answering a long list of questions in 140 characters or less.

The Republican governor was sitting in his office Thursday using Twitter for the first time.

He's choosing and answering as many questions he can for 30 minutes.

He said as he began, "You have to figure out ways to communicate with everybody."

Scott's Twitter account is (at)FLGovScott. Questioners are using the hashtag (pound)flgov.

The first question was about how the state can compete with the private sector for the best employees if benefits erode.

His response, "make sure the retirement benefits are secure and other benefits are fair."
