- Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) updates its Twitter page with bulletins about structural fires, the number of responding firefighters, and injuries and casualties;
- Portland (Ore.) Police Department tweets about crime reports and sometimes asks the public for leads in cold cases;
- The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) updates its feed with traffic alerts and route changes for ferry vessels; and
- The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) tweets trivia questions and hypotheticals.
Even the Environment protection Agency has gotten into the act with "Greenversations".
I guess this is part of the change we voted for :-)
