Redondo's Bon Mots Now Twitter-Only

New, 3 comments

Redondo Beach is quitting Facebook. Privacy concerns? Sick of hearing from the kid it went to summer camp with in seventh grade? No, the city is wondering "whether Redondo Beach would have to retain user comments under the state's Public Records Act - a task that would likely come with a cost - and how officials would handle erroneous or vulgar posts that could arguably be protected by First Amendment rights. Furthermore, could a Facebook post attracting comments from three or more council members constitute a violation of the state's open meetings law?" [Daily Breeze]
