As of the end of 2011, Keene 411 version 2.0 is now active. If you were a subscriber to the old Keene 411 (347-603-0411 and @Keene411
), then you'll need to use the new number 302-41-KEENE (302-415-3363), and follow the new Twitter, @411Keene
. When you are ready, you probably will want to remove the old Keene 411 from your phone and Twitter as we have no way of shutting it down.
