Colorado Judiciary Turns to Twitter

Colorado’s judiciary is turning to social media — specifically, Twitter accounts — to help educate the public.

The state’s Judicial Branch has announced that the state Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals, and the Office of the State Court Administrator will use Twitter to communicate breaking news, insights about the work of the courts, and ongoing community education initiatives.

“Social media platforms such as Twitter have proven to be powerful and useful communication tools with deep reach to broad audiences,” Colorado Chief Justice Nancy Rice said.  “I believe that Twitter will enhance our outreach and communication efforts as we pursue our mission to educate Coloradans about the roles, responsibilities and actions of our Courts.”
