Minneapolis City Council members will be covered by a new social media policy.

Starting in January, Minneapolis' elected leaders and staff must start using official accounts to speak to the public about city business through sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

The City Council unanimously passed a new social media policy Thursday that will set new restrictions for Minneapolis' mayor, 13 City Council members and thousands of employees and volunteers - the first update to the city's online rules in eight years. A new and significant change will be the creation of city-authorized accounts for those serving in elected positions, an effort to draw a clearer line between personal and government messaging.
