Gwinnett launches additional social media pages to inform public

Gwinnett County Government recently added to its social media presence with new Facebook and Twitter accounts to help inform the public about events, news, tips and more.

Gwinnett County Government established pages on Twitter and Facebook (@GwinnettGov), Police have added a Facebook page (@GwinnettPD) and the Department of Fire and Emergency Services has created new Twitter and Facebook accounts (@GwinnettFire).

In addition to social media pages established by the offices of the Sheriff, District Attorney and Tax Commissioner, Gwinnett’s previous social media presence consisted of a Twitter page for the Gwinnett Police Department (also @GwinnettPD), a Facebook page for the Gwinnett Animal Shelter (@GwinnettAnimalShelter), and Gwinnett Transit on Facebook (@GwinnettCountyTransit) and Twitter (@GCTransit).

“Being on Facebook and Twitter enables us to reach people who might otherwise not see information that could affect them in real ways,” said Joe Sorenson, County communications director. “It opens up opportunities to tell people about fun activities, valuable services, helpful programs and how to respond in an emergency. Social media will serve to keep us all vibrantly connected.”
