City’s Twitter feed hits 10,000 follower mark
November 28, 2013 -
As of yesterday afternoon, the City's main Twitter feed (@cityofkingston) has more than 10,000 followers. Twitter was the first external social medium employed by the City and the popularity of its Twitter feed has grown with that of Twitter itself, and is now growing by about 100 new followers a week.
"Twitter is a great way to quickly deliver updates of immediate use to residents and keep them up-to-date on all the news of the City," says Susan Nicholson, Director of Corporate Affairs. She notes that it was likely yesterday's Tweeted service updates about snow removal and Kingston Transit that helped the City over the 10,000 follower mark.
Launched in October 2012, City's facebook page (www.facebook.com/TheCityofKingston), now is "Liked" by 1,169 users.
