The Kennedy family on Twitter

by

The Kennedy family launched a Twitter account: @KennedyNews—“The Official Twitter account of the family of the late senator, Edward M. Kennedy.” The family is using it to keep the public informed about memorial and funeral activities for Senator Kennedy, who passed away a few days ago after a year-long struggle with brain cancer.

The account has already garnered over 5,000 followers, with news about the family, motorcade, sitting vigils, and number of people in line to pay their respects. Here is a snapshot of the page:

Yet another amazing example demonstrating the use of social media to keep an interested public informed. Twitter is quickly becoming one of the best broadcast tools out there.
