Do you find it difficult to keep track of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s food recommendations?  Do you fail to remember whether it was cantaloupes or honeydews that were recently contaminated with listeria?  Do you wonder whether or not a Connecticut concern should be on New York’s radar?  If so, then you might find some comfort, as the USDA will be using Twitter as a vehicle to effectively communicate such local and national information.

Although news releases will always be available, online and in full form, for those who care to know of specific details, the Associated Press reports on the USDA’s further adoption of the 140-character platform.  In addition to the general feed, @USDAFoodSafety, each state will have its own Twitter feed, which will be used to re-Tweet national news and broadcast state alerts.  Read More

We had a great Twitter chat with celebrity chefs and food experts Bryan Voltaggio, Daniel Boulud, Michael Chiarello, Hillary Mickell from Foodily, Veronica Chan from Gojee, and Amanda Hesser from Food52.
