The police expect 40,000 people to come to the Museum Square (which is just behind the Van Gogh Museum) to celebrate New Year’s on Friday. By using Twitter, they will inform the public about security issues as well as how best to reach the square in case of traffic jams, etc.

The Amsterdam police has started using Twitter for big events for the first time this year. On example is when there was a celebration for the Dutch national football team when they came back from the World Cup.

The city of Groningen (in the north of Holland) has also announced it will use Twitter to manage New Year’s celebrations.
