The Town of Sudbury is introducing its new Twitter account which is available to anyone who is interested in knowing what is happening in Sudbury. The account, https://twitter.com/sudbury_town, will provide timely communications to residents such as alerts on impending weather events, school or Town office closings, traffic problems and road closures, and updates on pending issues from Town committees. In addition, all front page news articles on the Town of Sudbury’s main website are posted on the Town’s Twitter account. As part of the Town’s overall website infrastructure and social media presence, the Town’s new Twitter account is a beneficial means of communication.
At the present time, the main Town Twitter account links to all committees and departments that post news stories on the Town’s website’s Home Page. Any town committee or department that has their own Twitter account, such as Police, Fire, Senior Center, and Pool, will have any articles on their website automatically posted to their Twitter account. In addition, their articles will then be retweeted to the Town of Sudbury Twitter account. The Town Twitter account is a central gathering point for all web-based tweets. For example, if you create a news article on the Senior Center website, it will be posted to the Senior Center Twitter site and the Town’s Twitter site will retweet their posting.
Visitors with their own Twitter account can follow the Town of Sudbury’s Twitter account by hitting the Follow icon.
Future plans for Twitter include providing more Town departments with Twitter accounts as well as linking information to other social media sites. Residents are encouraged to subscribe to Twitter in order to receive up-to-the-minute information about the Town.
