'Tweet potholes' appeal launched

The council have got a wee bit of publicity for announcing that they're going to take reports of potholes via Twitter (to the press office account, oddly) – "It just makes sense to use it," said Council spokesman Geoff Coleman.

Have to say it would make a lot more sense to use fixymystreet.com which is built of the purpose, and would be great to endorse. [link]

    Have just heard today that the joint creator of the “web” is involved with the government in a new scheme to help the councils find potholes in and around the local area amongst other things. Can only be a good idea, though i should imagine they will get flooded by requests to patch dodgy roads. Love the Bins site by the way.

    It's great that they're using Twitter for this. After all, it's not as if there's a Birmingham City Council website we can use. Or a Highways Department with, you know, telephones and stuff.

    Shhh. Listen carefully. You can hear 'hollow PR bumph' from here.
