A Small Town In Spain Replaced Bureaucracy With Twitter
The social network has become the major channel of communication for locals and government officials
In the small town of Jun in Southern Spain (population: approximately 3,600), residents tweet at government officials to book doctor appointments or report crimes to the local police. The small town’s active social media is thanks to its mayor, José Antonio Rodríguez Salas, who has over 400,000 followers on Twitter. On his page, he’s seen in a classical Spanish building, surrounded by real life Twitter birds, one of which he holds between his hands like a treasure.
