After garnering over one lakh followers on Twitter, the Greater Chennai Corporation has started publishing a weekly newsletter and has asked its field officials to send the details of COVID-19 control measures.
On Thursday, the Corporation published its first newsletter on its official portal with photographs and articles about the fight against COVID-19 and its success. “The responsibility of making newsletters has been given to the social media team that handles Twitter and other social media handles. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, we have garnered over one lakh followers. We have our presence on Instagram and Facebook also,” said an official.
The Corporation had passed a council resolution a few years ago, when there was an elected council, to publish newsletters aimed at promoting its schemes and projects. However, it stopped after a few issues, and has resumed only now. The first issue of the newsletter had stories about COVID-19 control measures taken in Kannagi Nagar among others.
