Fairfax Co. Tweets -- Easier to follow

The McClean Connection ran a story yesterday (2/11) about how Fairfax co. now uses Twitter to get news out quickly: Fairfax County is All Atwitter.

Interesting use by a government to get info out quickly.

I wonder, how many of the 31 followers are journalists covering the Fairfax beat?

Guess I should have looked at the followers at the Fairfax site.

The Connection has it backwards. The county is following 31 people -- all media types. The county has 134 followers. And from the looks of the list, the followers range from other governments to media to average citizens.
