If you are a Twitter user and want to ask Chief John Batiste questions about the Washington State Patrol, you will get that opportunity from 2:30-4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Batiste will host the 90-minute online session. People are invited to tweet their questions, and answers will be tweeted for all to see, according to a State Patrol media release.

“I love going to Rotary and Kiwanis, and other events where I get to hear directly from the people we serve,” Batiste said. “This is a simply a new way of doing what all good leaders should be doing.”

Batiste admits it will be a challenge to answer questions in 140 or fewer characters, the limit set by Twitter.

“I have big hands, so I hope people will excuse any typos,” he said.

Batiste will be assisted by staff who will quickly research any detailed questions. About the only topic off-limits will be those concerning active investigations. Questions that demand more than 140 characters will be more fully answered on WSP’s Facebook page.

You can watch or participate in the “#askWSP” event by following @wastatepatrol on Twitter. Questions should be tweeted with the hashtag “#askWSP.” The State Patrol’s Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/WashingtonStatePatrol.
