Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, Cory Booker is at it again — he’s been on Twitter since the start of this year’s “Snowpocalypse,” letting citizens know about the city’s cleanup efforts and personally digging out the cars of those in need.
This isn’t the first time that Booker — the de facto main character of the documentary series Brick City — has used the micro-blogging service to help those who need aid. During last winter’s blizzard, Booker came to the rescue when Jersey resident Ravie Rave tweeted that her elderly father’s walk was in need of shoveling.
This year, Booker is out in full force once more, keeping citizens up to date on the progress of cleanup, delivering supplies and getting Newark residents on the road again.
What do you think of the mayor’s use of Twitter? Do you wish your local government was as tech-savvy as Booker?
