Pa. utility commission joins Twittersphere

Posted: March 01, 2013

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, which criticized electric utilities for insufficient social media outreach during several 2011 tropical storms, has finally joined the Twittersphere itself.

The PUC on Thursday launched a Twitter page - @PA_PUC - as well as a Facebook page for PAPowerswitch.com, its website that assists customers shopping for competitive electrical suppliers.

"We think this is an ideal time to ramp up our communications efforts, and the use of Facebook and Twitter is bringing us into the 21st century," PUC Chairman Robert F. Powelson said in a video news release.
