Twitter has a new tweeter – and follower – the San Bernardino Superior Court. Everything from alerts and critical information to notices of courthouse closures and new program announcements will now be available in real time via @SanBernCourt. Joining Twitter and attempting to enhance communication with courthouse users is one component of the San Bernardino Superior Court’s strategic plan for 2018 through 2023. Increasing the ease of access to court information through a popular social media platform which is available on most cell phones has been well-received by the court’s staff.
John P. Vander Feer, a presiding Judge in the San Bernardino Superior Court commented: “Communicating on Twitter is part of the court’s commitment to open and accessible justice. Increasing engagement and transparency is vital. Twitter is a useful tool to achieve this.”
