TULSA, Oklahoma - The Oklahoma Department of Transportation @OKDOT got a number of tweets from drivers this week, thanking its maintenance crews statewide for clearing the highways on Christmas Day.

ODOT says it forwarded those tweets to its crews and says some of those crews are still busy in southern Oklahoma making sure snow and ice are off the highways Thursday.

ODOT says its maintenance crews loved the kind words.

Speaking of Twitter, ODOT officials stress Twitter users should not tweet while driving.
