DENVER – The Colorado Supreme Court, Court of Appeals and Office of the State Court Administrator have taken to Twitter as a portal to communicate with the media and public about breaking news, the work of the Courts, and ongoing community education initiatives.
“Social media platforms such as Twitter have proven to be powerful and useful communication tools with deep reach to broad audiences,” Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Nancy Rice said. “I believe that Twitter will enhance our outreach and communication efforts as we pursue our mission to educate Coloradans about the roles, responsibilities and actions of our Courts.”
The Colorado Supreme Court (@CoSupremeCourt) will Tweet case announcements, oral argument schedules, proposed and adopted rule changes, committee actions, events like Courts in the Community hosted by the Justices, and other information related to the operation of the Supreme Court.
The Colorado Court of Appeals (@CoCourtAppeals) will also Tweet case announcements and oral argument schedules, as well as changes to any Court protocols and policies, Court outreach initiatives and events, and other important information related to the Court of Appeals.
The statewide Judicial Twitter handle (@CoCourts) will be used by the Office of the State Court Administrator, as well as Colorado’s District and County Courts, and will provide information on high-profile cases, press releases, media alerts, courthouse closures and delayed openings, judicial vacancies, career opportunities, jury information and other timely news.
In addition to Colorado Judicial’s robust Website, the Courts and Probation also have a presence on LinkedIn and Facebook. The Court’s public information officer, Rob McCallum, began using Twitter in 2012 as a way to communicate with the media and public about high-profile cases. McCallum will continue using his Twitter account (@rwmccallum) to complement the Courts’ accounts.
