The Gwinnett County government is finally joining social media.
“Being on Facebook and Twitter enables us to reach people who might otherwise not see information that could affect them in real ways,” Gwinnett spokesman Joe Sorenson said in a news release. “It opens up opportunities to tell people about fun activities, valuable services, helpful programs and how to respond in an emergency.”
The county also announced Monday new Facebook and Twitter pages for the Gwinnett fire department (@GwinnettFire), as well as a new Facebook page for the Gwinnett County Police Department. The latter already had a Twitter account.
Various county agenices or departments — including the sheriff’s office, district attorney, tax commissioner, animal shelter and Gwinnett transit — have previously launched social media accounts.
