Columbia's Civic Progress Committee has set up a up a feed on Twitter to keep members of the community abreast of progress in planning, funding, constructing and promoting the Main Street streetscape project. This electronic "bulletin board" is one of the first of its kind in the nation for a Main Street effort.
Twitter is a website where a sender can broadcast very short messages--140 characters, maximum--to anyone who’s signed up to receive them. It’s like a cross between a blog and a chat room. Twitter feeds can be accessed from a variety of platforms--in other words, followers can receive its short messages from a website, via email, even over their cell phone or Blackberry device.
To sign on for regular updates about what's happening on Columbia's Main Street, visit Twitter or contact Paul Ellis at the City.
