SFWMD to Tweet News, Events, and Service Info
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) launched a pilot program on Twitter as part of its continuing effort to find innovative ways to inform the public about its activities and initiatives.
"The district strives to be on the cutting edge of technology as we manage and protect the water resources of South Florida," said Executive Director Carol Ann Wehle. "It should be no different when it comes to sharing information with the 7.5 million people we serve. Our Twitter feed will allow us to directly communicate with an increasingly busy public about the district's initiatives."
Twitter marks the district’s first use of popular social media Web tools and provides the agency with another avenue to distribute information. In fewer than 140 characters, the agency plans to use its feed to:
- Distribute press releases
- Promote events and public meetings
- Deliver customer service information
- Release emergency management announcements
