NCDA&CS launches department Twitter account

RALEIGH – Following on the heels of the success of several social media ventures, the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has added a Twitter account to augment the blog, Facebook and YouTube accounts it already has.

The account, www.twitter.com/ncagriculture, will keep followers up-to-date on events and news in the department.

“Our social media outreach has been very effective so far, so it only makes sense to extend into Twitter,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “We’ve had great interactions with fairgoers through our State Fair Twitter account and see great value in adding another account to include department news.”

The Twitter account was launched this week. The NCDA&CS Public Affairs staff will use the feed to communicate with Twitter users and share information, such as farmers markets reports, severe weather closings and special announcements.
