  6. Thanks! My personal stream contains a lot of nongov topics, but as I continue to work on my MPA at Mason I’m sure I’ll be on-topic more often, and do enjoy following others who govtweet. Just make sure to add my professional stream, @signalmag , to the mix. I do watch it closely while I’m in the office on Mondays and Wednesdays, and keep an eye on replies to it to hopefully keep the DOD conversation going. And I’m always looking for feedback on how we can make that stream more useful for our readers.

  7. Red Hat’s government team is @RedHatGov

  8. You2Gov – twitter id you2gov — is a private enterprise devoted to aggregating the best of government content in the social arena. Please put us on your list as well.

  9. Don’t leave out the military! Follow @lindykyzer for information on blogger’s roundtables and lots more, and also be sure to include AF and Navy twitter accounts…

  11. FYI, the twitter feed you have listed for Ron Paul is a fake.

  12. This is a great resource – thanks. I would like to mention that Roll Call, the newspaper of Capitol Hill, is now Twittering. Our information is as follows:
    Name: Roll Call
    Org: Roll Call
    Twitter: rollcall
    Website: http://www.rollcall.com

  13. Great list – thanks! See this recent DipNote post re: another Dept of State feed: http://blogs.state.gov/index.php/entries/twitter_public_diplomacy_romania/

  14. You know you’re going to need more than an HTML table if you actually want to keep track of this, right? Especially if you include all those private sector orgs. Here are some local elected officials on Twitter in NC:

    State House Representative: http://twitter.com/tyharrell
    Mayor of Carrboro: http://twitter.com/markchilton
    Member of Chapel Hill Town Council: http://twitter.com/midcenturysal

    And he may not be using it any more, but http://twitter.com/barackobama seems like it belongs on this page somewhere.

  15. Great list, thanks! If you’re keeping it updated, twitter.com/aidsbooth should be
    twitter.com/aidsgov

  16. The United States Coast Guard international search and rescue program, Amver, is on Twitter at http://twitter.com/Amver, has a blog at http://www.amveruscg.blogspot.com, and on the web at http://www.amver.com.

  17. Hi. Please add EPA’s news releases: http://twitter.com/usepanews and http://www.epa.gov/newsroom

    Also, you might want to coordinate with another gov’t tweeter list: http://twitter.pbwiki.com/USGovernment

    It seems like you have individual people, too. I tweet as EPA’s Director of Web Communications @levyj413

    Oh, and here are two local folks:

  32. fluentsimplicity

    Nice resource! You may find a few more resources on my twitter index (the Social Brand Index): http://www.socialbrandindex.com/twitter/government–politics

  33. Great that you’re echoing the nth version of what already exists, so may I ask why you’re creating this on a corporate webpage and not an open sourced wiki?

  34. Where are the WA representatives like Dave Reichert? Pls ask them to list.

  35. Hey thanks for including Sunlight Foundation! (We’re actually a .com site, not .org, even though we’re a non-profit.)
    We’ve got other twitter accounts you might enjoy including http://twitter.com/sunlightnetwork (our main tweeting presence) and http://twitter.com/sunfoundation (lists our blog updates). We’re also fans of http://twitter.com/opencrs – which lists newly uploaded Congressional Research Service reports to the http://opencrs.com site (which we fund).

  36. I’m tweeting for the Environmental Protection Agency on social media and gov’t: @levyj413

    EPA news releases are @usepanews

    Could you please put EPA/OWOW at the end of EPA’s listings?

    Also, @billschrier is Bill Schrier, Seattle, WA CIO.

    Thanks!

  37. bearingpointblog

    Ari, we chose to create and host GovTwit directly at our blog as well as creating a related ID on Twitter because we thought they would both become a valuable resource for the broader government community (We hope to make @GovTwit on Twitter more robust moving forward).

    There are valuable “x part of government using Twitter” lists out there, and your Federal wiki is a very good one. But it was frustrating that lists were scattered in bits and pieces over the Web, and that they weren’t all-inclusive. The GovTwit directory is the only source we’re aware of that’s tried to incorporate the full spectrum of Govt. into a single site, including industry, media, state/local, etc. I think we’d be open to repurposing stuff from GovTwit into a wiki, but it’s just not the direction decided on for the launch or immediate future.

  38. Please add @tgmason a social media/gov 2.0 strategy consultant Booz Allen Hamilton.

  39. Our Regional Public Affairs Office is using twitter:

    twitter.com/usfs_r5

  43. IT Director for Roanoke County and co-founder of MuniGov2.0 (https://sites.google.com/site/munigov20/)

    Tweeting mostly on 2.0 adoption in local government: twitter.com/bgreeves

  44. @secgen is the address for the UN’s Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, it is fairly active in twittering all his meetings throughout the day.

  45. Ari, why does everything have to be an opensourced wiki? It’s not as if you can’t post a comment here freely. Let someone cull through it and organize it and be an informed intelligence instead of Hive Mind for once.

  46. Just saw this on Twitter: another list of Congressional tweeters for you to add: http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Members_of_Congress_who_Twitter

    One suggestion: since this is supposed to be about gov’t, and most people will come here looking to see who in gov’t is tweeting, I suggest moving the academics and reporters to the end. I’m not even sure how you define them into the arena of “government.”

  47. Great idea. Please add me to media list

  50. “Academics” is an interesting heading. To me, working in higher ed, that means faculty, not the institutional accounts.

    I suggest Colleges & Universities as an additional heading for people who want to find the official institutional voice. There are a few universities establishing accounts and I expect to see more and more.

    The Port of San Diego was created by the state Legislature in 1962 to manage San Diego Bay and surrounding waterfront land. With more than 600 employees and 2007 revenues of $133.7 million, the agency oversees the protection and development of the Bay. The Port is made up of Imperial Beach, National City, Chula Vista, San Diego and Coronado waterfront properties.

    The Port is governed by a seven-member Board of Port Commissioners; one commissioner each is appointed by the city councils of Chula Vista, Coronado, Imperial Beach and National City, and three commissioners are appointed by the San Diego City Council.

    Thanks for a great Twitter resource.

Currently, I work at a social marketing firm in Washington D.C. who services government agencies, non-profits and foundations, largely within the public health sector. Thus, one of the interests I blog, Twitter, and have a large interest in is the government 2.0 movement. My post, about Government entities on Twitter was, I believe, the original and first created. If I could be added to the “other” category, I would be much obliged.

I wonder if it would be possible to add 1) a last updated date; and b) a “table of conents” that shows at least the names of the sections you’ve broken the list into, and then links to each section. (Not sure if that’s do-able in this blog format, but doesn’t hurt to ask.)
