City of Worcester and Twitter

The City of Worcester Police Department has been posting press releases here and also tweeting here.

If you look at the past week, this is what you would find:

I’d been under the impression that the Worcester PD wanted to undercut the Telegram by posting news items online first, or at least to solicit tips while the iron was hot, so to speak.  If either were the case, I’m not sure that they’re succeeding.  Perhaps they can take lessons from DPW?  (Has anyone subscribed to the txtAlert for parking bans?  How well has it been working?)
