OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Gov. Pete Ricketts announced Wednesday that he has joined Snapchat and Parler in order to reach more Nebraskans as the state continues to fight COVID-19, according to the news release from his office.

“Over the course of his administration, Governor Ricketts has worked to leverage new technologies and platforms to connect more Nebraskans to the work of the Governor’s Office,” said Taylor Gage, director of strategic communications for Ricketts, said in a news release. “Snapchat and Parler will help the office reach even more Nebraskans as we continue to work to grow Nebraska and slow the spread of coronavirus.”

The governor can be found on Snapchat, a video-driven social media platform, at @NEGovOffice; and at @GovRicketts on Parler, recently made popular as an alternative to Facebook, particularly among conservatives.
