 OMPA Now on Twitter and Facebook

To address the fast-changing world of the Internet and the way residents communicate and obtain information online, the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) is now on Facebook and Twitter in order to reach a broader audience. 

Facebook and Twitter are just two forms of social media that are free of charge and they are growing more rapidly each day.

 Both social media outlets will be used as channels for disseminating time-sensitive information, such as outages, as quickly as possible and as a marketing/promotional tool to link to articles, press releases or anything we feel may be of importance. These tools will give OMPA the ability to broadcast its messages to the widest possible audience. 

 OMPA’s website, www.ompa.com, will remain our primary and predominant Internet presence.  Anything that is posted to Facebook and Twitter can also be found on the OMPA website. 

 A copy of OMPA’s social media policy can be found on the OMPA website at http://ompa.com/publications/social-media/.  To follow/like OMPA on either Facebook or Twitter, simply go to www.ompa.com and click on either the Facebook or Twitter logo.  You will need to have some form of social media in order to follow us. 

 OMPA would like to encourage all of our member cities to take part in some form of social media.  If you have any questions or need any help setting up a social media site or developing a policy regarding social media please do not hesitate to contact me.  I will be glad to personally visit your city/town and help you set this up. 

 OMPA is a state governmental agency created by the legislature to serve cities and towns that own and operate their electrical distribution systems and is governed by the members. The Authority presently serves 37 municipally-owned electric systems in Oklahoma.
