After the snowstorm Monday, First Selectman Tim Herbst found himself in the center of another kind of storm, on social media.
Herbst has been active on social media, both Facebook and Twitter, during the town’s last two snowstorms. He has used both to give storm information and respond to residents — everything from questions on when streets will get cleared to what to do if a plow hits your mailbox. However, things went downhill a bit Monday night when Trumbull High students, via Twitter, wanted to know about school closing the next day. While the decision on school closings rests in the hands of Superintendent Gary Cialfi, many were sending messages to the first selectman at twitter.com/timherbst.
