It's been a little over one hundred days since Greg Fischer has been in office as Louisville's new mayor. One key aspect I've been watching for is if Mayor Fischer will engage and use social media as a platform to communicate and engage the local community.
After an intial tweet to Mayor Fischer, a few weeks after he took office as Louisville's new mayor, about whether or not he'll be leveraging Twitter and not hearing a response back, I almost gave up hope; but not entirely.
I do understand there are a lot of tasks a newly elected mayor must accomplish in his first one hundred days so I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I've been actively watching his (official) Twitter account and it seems that the Mayor has been taking an active role in Twitter and engaging the local community. Below are a few tweets from the Mayor himself:
