Lacey is all a Twitter

May 28th, 2013 by Ken

Citing the decline in traditional media and the popularity of social networking, the City of Lacey has finally decided to ride the digital social media wave.

Starting June 24, the city will have a city wide Twitter account to coincide with the announcement of the July 3 fireworks display.

As traditional media continues its decline, the city sees Facebook and Twitter as a means to reach a generation of Americans who no longer read newspapers or listen to radio.

Problems associated with previous Twitter efforts include inconsistent tweets, infrequent posts and vague standards.  The city hopes to avoid these issues by adopting policies and setting standards.   The public affairs office of the city will manage the Twitter account and track its usefulness.
