Many municipalities have stale, old websites and technology solutions which have not been modified or updated in a decade.  Fortunately for Pequannock residents, their staff is more than technologically savvy.  Pequannock has already boasted a well-maintained webpage, updated on a regular basis by the Police Department, Township Clerk, Parks and Recreation, Environmental Commission, and sundry others, but now the Pequannock Department of Public Works has launched a Twitter account.

For those not in the know, Twitter.com allows users to post 140 character messages that are viewed by those "Following" their account.  Those not interested in maintaining a Twitter account need not fret, "tweets" as they're called can be read by the general public via the Twitter site and even subscribed to via txt message for those who want to avoid the website altogether.

In other social media news, many organizations in Pequannock organize communications and events via Facebook pages.  Though there are too many to list here, a few come to mind:
Pequannock Historic District Commission:

Pequannock Township:

Pequannock Animal Shelter:

...and many more.

Christopher Lotito is a member of the Pequannock Historic District, Open Space, and Flood Control Advisory Commissions as well as the author of  "Torrent," a book about flooding in the region.  Lotito's personal mission is to reduce new taxes, drastically reduce flooding, and preserve more green spaces for our children.  Christopher Lotito Profile
