Mayor Engages His Community Through Twitter

Donna Papacosta presents a great example of how Twitter can be used to support real communication goals. In her Trafcom News podcast, she recently interviewed the mayor of Oakville, Canada.

Some tactics have worked better or gained more traction than others. But the key is, he’s not afraid to try something new.
