A COUNCIL has entered the age of tweeting to keep in touch with its residents.

Fareham Borough Council has launched a Twitter account which will be used to let its followers know about upcoming events, items of interest within the borough, and to keep the public informed about what’s happening at the council.

Councillor Seán Woodward, the leader of the council, said: ‘Following us on Twitter makes the council more accessible to the public.

‘Not only can they find out about forthcoming events and items of interest but it also gives residents the opportunity to interact with us, by posting tweets back.’

Twitter has been one of the internet success stories of recent years where people can leave ‘tweets’, messages of up to 140 characters, for anyone registered as their follower.

Celebrities such as Stephen Fry and Jonathan Ross have attracted millions of followers.

To see the account go to twitter.com and search for ‘FarehamBC’.
