Mayor McAdams to Host Twitter Chat

Members of the public will have a chance to participate in a candid, personal discussion with Mayor Ben McAdams via his first Twitter Chat this Thursday, September 5 at 10:30 a.m. The topic for the hour long Twitter Chat is education.


Twitter Chat works by logging onto Twitter, following @MayorBenMcAdams, and using the hashtag #BenChat. By inserting #BenChat into each post all comments can be filtered into one stream, thus enabling participants to follow the conversation.

“Technology and social media offer innovative ways for me and the community to stay in touch, and I want to take advantage of that,” said Mayor McAdams. “This Twitter Chat is just another way for me to be accessible to members of the public.”

Questions about how to participate can be emailed to Mayor McAdams at [email protected], or posted to the mayor’s Facebook or Twitter pages:;
