View Full Version : Twitter accounts to keep up with OKC

09-05-2014, 08:43 AM
I think this has come up before, but I couldn't locate it.

Its always frustrating to learn about a fun event only AFTER its occurred. I find social media to be the best platform for getting the information before the event happens - problem is - if you don't know what social media account to follow then you're often out of the loop.....

While I technically 'follow' lots of people on Twitter, in reality I prefer to only read my pre-selected lists that are divided by local news, national news, international news, tech stuff, activism stuff, etc.

That said, what Twitter accounts do you follow or otherwise find useful for keeping up with what's going on LOCALLY (OKC, Edmond, Moore, Norman, etc.)?

I haven't updated or sought out new feeds to follow in awhile, but here's my list for local events and happenings only;

1.) @WesternAvenue (info on OKC's Western Ave. District)
2.) @OKgazette
3.) @OKCparks
4.) @DowntownOKCInc
5.) @MyriadGardens
6.) @Bricktown411
7.) @BricktownOKC
8.) @LowerBricktown
9.) @AutoAlleyOKC
10.) @MidtownR
11.) @FilmRowOKC
12.) @OKCchamber
13.) @ArtsCouncilOKC
14.) @PaseoOKC
15.) @VisitOKC
16.) @AlliedArtsOKC
17.) @h_n_8th
18.) @GrouponOKC
19.) @PlazaDistrict
20.) @LIVEonthePlaza

I don't include local news stations (too much 'click baiting' in their tweets) and I don't include individual establishments (like restaurants, etc.) because those are in another list of mine.

Please share your favorites to follow for local happenings.....

My list has hit about 40 Twitter accounts I follow on a regular basis to keep up with what's going on in and around downtown OKC.

I've made the list public for anyone who does or does not Tweet.
