McHenry County court joins social media

WOODSTOCK – McHenry County court is now on Facebook and Twitter.

Its Twitter handle is 22ndCircuit; the Facebook page is under Twenty Second Judicial Circuit of McHenry County.

“These media tools are meant to enhance how the Court communicates with members of the public, jurors, attorneys, media and others,” according to a news release.

Twitter will allow court officials to communicate quickly in case of an emergency or other situation, such as a courthouse closure because of severe weather.

The Facebook page is not intended to be a discussion forum about pending cases, outcomes of cases or legal information.

Instead, it will be used to publicize information about what is taking place in court.
