If you ask some Ohioans why they don't have an account on the social utility Twitter, they might say they don't want to know what everyone else had for breakfast. But Twitter is also a resource for Ohioans to get updated information about road closures, construction, and weather road conditions. The Ohio Department of Transportation's Scott Varner says the agency went online with twitter last month after months of considering the move. And in an interview with Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles, Varner explains the agency is finding a following so far.
Ohioans with Twitter accounts can plug the letters "ODOT" into the search bar. They can choose to follow the transportation departments in the area where they live or all over the state.
