Aides to the late Sen. Edward Kennedy are sending updates about his memorial services through a Twitter account.

The account, "kennedynews," opened Wednesday and has been updating the public about arrangements, who has been attending services and how many people have paid their respects to the late senator.

The account has informed the public when and where Kennedy's motorcade traveled, which family members have gone outside to thank people for attending, and who is at the family's sitting vigil during the viewing.

According to the account, around 25,000 people had paid their respects by Thursday evening.
