The Town has launched a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/townofchevychase) and Twitter account (@ChevyChaseTown). These two social media applications will provide the Town with additional ways to connect with residents with important news and information.
Both Facebook and Twitter will receive automatic feeds from the Town’s website, including Town news, agenda and calendar postings. In addition, staff will replicate Town Crier messages on both Facebook and Twitter. Initially, comments on Town Facebook postings will be allowed and moderated; however, public postings will not be allowed. Also, all Town tweets will be public, rather than be restricted to Town Twitter followers.
At its June meeting, the Town Council asked staff to develop a social media policy to establish a standard for oversight of all Town social media applications. This policy is posted on the Town’s website.
We hope you enjoy these new ways of hearing from the Town, and we look forward to your feedback.
