Worcester’s Social Media Policy in the Telegram

The Telegram is reporting that the city has clarified its social media policy “in the wake of concerns raised by some city councilors in recent months about the use of social media by the Police Department and by Police Chief Gary J. Gemme via his own Twitter account.”

As far as I can tell, this is the same policy we reported on last week; the article indicates that the policy was inspired, in part, by Chief Gemme’s use of various forms of social media.

Nick Kotsopoulous also reports that city employees had to read and sign an updated 10-page “Computer Access and Usage Policies and Procedures for the City of Worcester.”
