USDOE Is Tweeting

The Education Department wants everyone to see how it has come into the 21st Century. The department is now on Twitter and I just got an alert that it has tweeted!

The tweets are blasts of information in 140 characters or less, so I'm not sure how much info we can expect from these communiques. Today's tweet links to a video of Education Secretary Arne Duncan speaking at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va.

Now I'm really feeling like I'm in the loop. I wonder if the department will send out tweets on the really important stuff, like to alert us to the release of an inspector general report, or its response to critical news?

You can follow the Ed Department tweets too: @usedgov
