DHS needs a centralized social media policy

Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security. He said in a statement, "In recent years, social media have become useful and efficient tools for the government to communicate both to its workers and the American people. Given DHS' size and makeup, social media are particularly helpful for DHS to improve its relationship with its employees and communicate with the public during both natural and man-made disasters."
