The City of Baytown sees social media as an excellent way to not only promote City events and programs, and provide residents and visitors with real time information in the event of an emergency, but also as an effective form of two-way communication. Followers are encouraged to engage and give their input on a variety of pages targeted to specific audiences. Current social media sites include:
