Social Media for Governments: An Explanation (Part Two)

How would my organization use Twitter and other social media tools?

Would you like to be able to quickly inform and update the community of fire emergencies in the area?

Twitter can help you do that. Check out the Los Angeles Fire Department and the Napa City Fire Department.

Here is another article about how the fire department uses Twitter.  I especially like this quote

“Instead, “having this Web 2.0 presence … allows us to listen more clearly and more accurately over a greater area,” he said.”It is all about getting much more feedback [from the public].”

And these aren’t the only agencies using twitter. Law enforcement all over the country is turning to social media. And the premier local management association uses Twitter to reach a larger audience and update its members.

Do you need help crafting a social media strategy?
