(WASHINGTON) -- The United States Secret Service is getting ready to take up residence in the Twitter universe.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has announced that the Secret Service will roll out its official Twitter page on Monday. The unveiling of the page on the popular social networking website follows the recent launch of the Secret Service’s new recruiting website, and officials are hoping that “tweeting” can help with recruitment.
“The internet is a valuable resource for people all over the world,” said Secret Service Assistant Director Mickey Nelson in a statement. “By using social media sites, we hope to supplement our recruitment efforts, while providing an informative, helpful tool to businesses and individuals who are interested in information from our agency.”
Officials say the Twitter page will be used to share press releases, explore the Secret Service’s history, and promote upcoming recruitment opportunities, among other uses.
The page can be accessed by logging on to http://www.twitter.com/SecretService.
