From notices of Mayor to police support, from mid-day meal for children to request for an ambulance – everything in this town happens through, no other software or communication means, but ‘Twitter'.
Jun, the small town in Spain with 3,500 population is may not have photos of a king or prime minister of Spain in the Mayor's office but you will, surely, be able to find the blue Twitter birdie.
Even the police of the area wear the Twitter birdie on its uniform.
Everything in this town from administrative functions to personal and social commitments are communicated through Twitter. And, interestingly, this medium is welcomed equally by one and all. The Mayor of the area Jose' Antonio Rodriguez does not put a notice on the notice board if he has to announce something, he rather tweets it openly and immediately he starts getting the responses too.
If a street light is not working somewhere, the complainant posts the picture of the non-functional light on Twitter and immediately a response is received by him or her from the concerned department on Twitter and when the functioning is corrected by the department, the concerned person is informed through a picture on Twitter.
In the same manner, if somebody needs an Ambulance, he or she simply tweets it on the hospital's Twitter handle and immediately receives the required help.
Even the parents can keep an eye on their school-going kid through Twitter in this town as the respective schools keep on updating the parents with the provisions and activities going on in school through Twitter.
The turnaround time to resolve any issue in this town is merely three and a half minute. It would not be wrong to name this amazing town the first Twitter town of the world.
