California CIO Teri Takai launched a news hub that aggregates real time updates from Twitter, RSS and YouTube. The site displays updates from more than 200 agencies and departments and in one place. The news hub compiles data from the States’ 83 Twitter accounts, 40 YouTube channels and nearly 100 RSS feeds. The site is part of the newly redesigned Web portal that receives more than 7.3 million unique visits each month.
“The state is publishing a vast amount of news and information every day. With social networking sites and automated information feeds, state agencies are making it easier for news to reach the public,” Takai said in a press release. “We have taken the additional step of creating this continuously updated news hub, a one-stop destination for Californians to see what is happening in state government — all at a glance.”Channels: social media
