The National Transportation Safety
Board has established a Twitter account and a YouTube channel as
the Safety Board broadens its communication efforts by moving into
social media. The handle for the Twitter account is "ntsb". The
YouTube channel is "ntsbgov".
"Transparency and open government are key components of
NTSB's agenda to improve transportation safety," said NTSB Chairman
Deborah A.P. Hersman. Social media is yet another
opportunity for us to engage with our most important
stakeholders - the traveling public." The NTSB will use Twitter to
communicate with those interested in its investigative work and
advocacy programs to enhance transportation safety.
The YouTube channel will be a one-stop resource where the Safety
Board's advocacy video messages, transportation accident animations
and other video products can be accessed.
Chairman Hersman's first video
message on YouTube is about the NTSB's child and
youth transportation safety initiative.
