The Kane County Chronicle is amping up its Twitter presence.

Although the Chronicle has been on Twitter using the handles @kcchronicle and @KaneCountyPreps for some time – both accounts amassing nearly 4,000 followers each – individuals on our reporting team have recently created their own accounts as well, and they would love for you to follow them.

Want to follow specific editors and reporters from the Chronicle newsroom? Check out the following handles:

• @AlLagattolla – to follow news editor Al Lagattolla, who also facilitates Elburn, Maple Park, Sugar Grove and Kaneville coverage;

• @KCCFeaturesKara – to follow features editor Kara Silva;

Our news team will be tweeting about local events and breaking news, in addition to retweeting posts from local individuals, organizations and businesses. Of course, every now and again, we’ll also share some details about what’s happening in the Chronicle newsroom and our own personal lives.
