Many of you many remember that several months ago the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds started a Twitter account with the user name “lowelldeeds”. As I recall it was sometime in August when we were forced to stop twittering. Here is why we stopped…we put the twitter feed directly on our webpage. We did this to make it easier for people to follow us. People that come to the registry to do research know we use the face of the webpage in house as well as on the Internet. Unfortunately, our good intentions produced an unexpected bad result. We quickly discovered that the twitter feed was inadvertently slowing down the search process in the Record Book folder. This was only a problem for the in-house version of the Record Book folder search. The Record Book folder holds mainly books 1-1130. As soon as we found out about the problem we stopped twittering and removed it. But we still see great value for the public in the use of Twitter. For this reason we are bringing Twitter back. This time Twitter will reside separate where it will not adversely affect the in-house early record book search. So as of today you can keep up on what’s happening here at the registry of deeds by signing up to follow lowelldeeds on Twitter.
