Tweeting Troopers Have Big Following

KSAL StaffApril 10, 2014

Kansas Highway Patrol troopers say they are pleased how a new emphasis on using Twitter is helping communicate during storms or traffic problems.

The patrol formed a group called the Tweeting Troopers earlier this year as a way to quickly spread information to a large audience.

Trooper Gary Warner, who admits he was not a Twitter user before the group was formed, says he’s been amazed at how popular the tweets have become.

It’s not uncommon to have 50,000 to 70,000 views of a tweet, which is often retweeted by others and media. Warner says he’s attracted 2,000 followers in four months, and he’s excited to discover new uses for the social media tool.
