UNITED STATES ATTORNEY’S OFFICE
IS NOW ON TWITTER

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 21, 2011

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Michigan has opened a Twitter account to assist in providing the citizens in our communities with information about news, events, and special announcements through this social media channel, U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade announced today.

The use of Twitter by the U.S. Attorney’s Office follows the lead of the U.S. Department of Justice, which began using social media in 2009. "With more and more people relying on social media, we want to make sure that we are reaching those audiences," McQuade said. "We think it is important to keep the public informed about the work we are doing with taxpayer dollars, and we hope that awareness of our prosecutions has a deterrent effect on crime.”

To follow us, go to Twitter @USAO_MIE. In addition to Twitter, the U.S. Attorney’s Office also maintains a website that is the primary source of information relating to all functions of the office, including news releases and the U.S. Attorney’s bimonthly reports to the District.
