Town shuts social media presence, points to supervisor’s accounts


Oyster Bay tweets no more.

The town’s Facebook page also has been shuttered and its Instagram account closed.

Instead, its social media presence will all be through Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino’s accounts, officials said.

“The town’s Facebook page was removed, as it was a duplicative effort with the supervisor’s page,” spokeswoman Marta Kane said in an email. The town’s page was created in January, before Saladino’s appointment to replace former Supervisor John Venditto on Jan. 31, Kane said.

“Between his page and the council members’ pages, it seemed unnecessary to maintain a town page as well,” she said.

With the removal of its Facebook page, Oyster Bay joins East Hampton and Southold as the only towns or cities on Long Island without such a presence.
