One Tweet Does It All – Twitter Joins San Francisco’s 311 Telephone Service

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

San Francisco’s 311 telephone service, which you already know all about, now can be accessed through Twitter. Read all about it in the press release, after the jump.

Here’s a straight take of today’s press conferenceat the 311 Call Center near Van Ness and Market. And here’s writer Jackson West’s perspective. The thing about today’s announcement is that it doesn’t come with all that much of a bill, so that’s good. For what it’s worth, Washington D.C. is taking a different path with its 311 service.

And also signed in and on the scene, for some reason, were the “Virgin America Inflight Teammates”, who wanted credit for being there. Here are a couple of the friends of Oprah - there was something like six of them there today, all told. Let’s hear it for San Francisco’s little hometown airline, still around despite getting pushed around by the big boys all the time.

One of the things brought to the attention of 311 today via Twitter was the “illegal” viral campaign promoting the new “District 9″ film. No idea how that ticket will get resolved.  

Anyway, as promised, all the deets, after the jump.
