Coast Guard News Available on Twitter

If you want to keep up with CoastGuardNews as it changes, we are happy to introduce the latest tool in our arsenal. In addition to our RSS feed and email updates, we have established a CoastGuardNews Twitter.

If you aren’t familiar with Twitter, here’s how they describe it:

Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

The biggest difference between how most people use Twitter and how CoastGuardNews is using Twitter is that we will be sending out twitters whenever we publish a new story.

How do you use it? If you don’t already have a Twitter account, go to Twitter and sign up for a free account. Then go to the CoastGuardNews Twitter page and click on the follow button. You can now get the latest updates to CoastGuardNews on your mobile phone via texting, instant messaging, email or if you are using the Firefox browser you can use an add-ons for immediate notifications.

We hope you enjoy this new way of keeping up with CoastGuardNews and would like to thank Ryan Erickson from an Unofficial Coast Guard Blog for giving us the idea.

    Last 22 jun, the San Diego Coast Guard received a report at 5:11 p.m. of a downed aircraft carrying three people

    One survivor was recovered and transferred to Oceanside Harbor Police, but did not say the name. The Coast Guard continues to search for the other two people. One of these tree persons is a close relative of mine. A young mexican student at the air school. If anyone has more information about this accident and about the other two lost persons, I will be very thankful to hear about
