Minneapolis Twitters

The City is jumping on the Twitter bandwagon. You can now get info on all news and events happening in City government that can be summed up in 140 characters or less (which pretty much excludes any news from my office!) by following Minneapolis' Twitter account.

From the City's press release:

"Twitter is a popular, free, social networking and micro-blogging service that
allows users to send and read short (140 characters in length) updates that are
also known as “tweets.” When the City of Minneapolis sends out a “tweet,” those
who choose to follow the City will receive the headline of the story and also a
link back to the full story on the City’s Web site.

To follow the City of Minneapolis on Twitter, you must first have your own Twitter account. Once you have one, click the “Follow us on Twitter” link on the City’s home page, or visit and click the “follow” button underneath the City of Minneapolis logo. Users can then set their preferences to receive alerts via Twitter’s Web site, a cell phone, e-mail or even RSS feeds."
