|@SNT_Kenilworth on Twitter|
A fantastic new twitter account has opened @SNT_Kenilworth from the Warwickshire Police Safer Neighbourhoods Team in Kenilworth.
I don't need to tell you this is the first account of it's kind for Warwickshire Police - but I will anyway. My suggestion is FOLLOW this account to make Social Media a success in Kenilworth. If you're not on twitter, open an account today (Help is at hand).
Part of the reason I was at the Godiva Festival 2011 was to experience the use of Social Media by the Festival Organisers (Coventry City Council), West Midlands Police and the Public. I am then better placed to assist anyone in Warwickshire, especially the Council, the Police and even the Press. For example, the Bulldog Bash @BulldogBash is on 11-14 August 2011 which could be a future project.
Bottom line, this new twitter account is not a novelty or a gimmick. It's a way for the Police to engage with the community in Kenilworth. I am quite confident it will be a great success and I feel privileged that Warwickshire Police should choose Kenilworth for this trial (they did have 32 other teams to choose from).
