Lei Seca RJ was nominated for a Shorty Award!

Twitter for #BreakNews about Traffic Jam, Urban Violence, Blackouts, Police Checkpoints, Roadblocks and others in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We help millions of Brazilian drivers 24x7 to arrive home safely and quickly. Our Job is absolutely nonprofit and voluntary, all of our around 30.000 "street reports" tweet #news just to help the others, no payment or gifts are available. To understand the real importance of this service, it’s strongly necessary to show the scenario that we live in Rio. Unfortunately, our public Ground transportations are not efficient as the citizens need. The Buses are unsafe at dawn, our Metro Stop before 11 PM, taxis are too expensive for the most of population and there’s no other option for the people than use theirs Cars. At This Moment, the "@LeiSecaRJ" works providing real time #news for everyone late at night who need to arrive home safely with his family, yes safely because we can not forget that Rio still has troubles with urban violence, our govern has been working hard, but these troubles still injury the citizens. If you understand our cause and want to help us to become our voice stronger than we have now, please vote @leisecarj for #news category on Shorty awards. Thank you very much Edu Trevisan Partner and PR of @LeiSecaRJ

How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I work managing the image of companies, politics, brands and etc in social networks, so twitter is for me the most important tools to do that

We use more than one, but tweetdeck and hootsuite help our +33k "street reports" more, giving agility to update our breaking news profile

Words like ATENÇÃO (attention in portuguese) or EVITEM LOCAL! ENCHENTE! (avoid place.. Flood)
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Unfortunatelly yes. Some people don´t understand the responsabily to post false informations for us, so we had to unfollow and block them
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
We're connected with all kind of people. From students to famous actors, directors and biz people, so we believe would be unffair to choose 1
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
There are lots! But #BOLS (short term in portuguese for Police checkpoint), #ALAGAO (for Flooding) and #APAGAO (for Blackout) are the top!
How do you make your tweets unique?
We always make tweets useful and helpful! We are a breaknews profile, that´s why we exist!!!
What inspires you to tweet?
Tweet is the most viral form od communication in the world! It seems like a PUB where you can go to get info and to tell your friends yours
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No... We have 33,000 followers and they send us lots of information. We try to tweet just the necessary, sometimes we tweet to much, but it's for a special report like floodings or blackouts.
