FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Gov. Steve Beshear is planning to start tweeting on Twitter.
The 64-year-old governor announced on Wednesday he's jumping into the online world. He'll be sending people who follow him through the Web site with rapid fire updates.
Beshear says he feels it's important for Kentucky residents to get up-to-the-minute developments that occur in his office. He says he'll be able to "stay connected" with Kentucky residents.
The governor said he's been "tweeting" since earlier this week when he visited families in storm-ravaged sections of eastern Kentucky.
