The New York State Unified Court System is now issuing notifications regarding court closings, delayed openings, schedule changes and other emergencies by text message via Twitter.
To register to receive text messages about court closings, delayed openings, schedule changes, and other emergencies:
Text: follow nycourtsnotice to address 40404
You will receive an automated reply from Twitter saying that you are “following nycourtsnotice” and inviting you to “join the conversation” on Twitter (you do not need to join).
A Twitter account is not required to sign up. Text messaging charges may apply.
Please Note: The UCS Twitter account does not accept messages.
To stop receiving UCS Twitter text messages:
Text: off nycourtsnotice to address 40404
