MnDOT, State Patrol become social media savvy for traffic updates 30 Jan 12

The Minnesota State Patrol and Minnesota Department of Transportation are teaming up to make it easier to access their information during winter storms—especially for fans of social media.

The Patrol and MnDOT will now use the Twitter hashtag #mnstorm in all updates that involve storm events to make searching for road conditions and traffic updates faster and easier.
