Members of the media and the public alike can now get updates from the Oklahoma State Senate on Twitter. The tweets will be sent by the Senate Communications Department, a nonpartisan staff division that serves all 48 members of the Oklahoma State Senate. The messages, also known as tweets, will include updates on key committee and task force meetings, press conferences and floor action on specific legislation.
“I’m very proud of our entire Senate staff for the work they’ve done in the past several years to take advantage of technology, from getting legislation online, to live streaming audio and video from two of our main committee rooms as well as the chamber,” said Sen. Glenn Coffee, President Pro Tempore of the Senate. “The Senate Communication tweets can give people a heads up on key events and help interested individuals keep up with big events at the State Capitol.”
OKSENATEINFO will kick-off the service this week with reminders of upcoming interim study meetings, links to press releases and media advisories. Links for audio files, as well as streaming audio and video for important legislation, will be sent as well.
