Hurricane Season Tweets

Businesses are increasingly tapping into the growing popularity and use of social media as another way to reach their customers and communities. If you’re in Mississippi this hurricane season you may want to sign up to receive tweets from the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT). The MDOT has just announced that it will utilize the social networking site Twitter to assist in providing traffic information for evacuation routes during the upcoming 2009 hurricane season. MDOT has created six separate Twitter feeds that will provide route-specific traffic information to evacuees traveling Interstates 10, 20, 55, 59 and U.S. Highways 49 and 98. Evacuees will receive information on traffic delays, contraflow information, fuel availability and roadway openings on a real-time basis.
