Well, I’m finally getting settled in here, and hope to begin posting some more.
One of the first things I did on moving into town was to look for some good Twitter people to follow. Its an easy way for me to see whats going on around town.
Here are a few of the Boston-related Twitter accounts I’ve been following. Suggest more in the comments.
1. @BostonTweet You can tweet things to @BostonTweet and have them show up on bostontweet.com, which is nifty. Apparently that guy eats and pub crawls for a living or something. Good heads up on concerts, events, and chances to snag tix to things.
2. @EvilBostonTweet Remember that episode of Star Trek where Kirk gets split into his good and evil halfs? Yeah. This is pretty much what you think it is. By which I mean hilarious.
3. @Boston_Police Nothing contributes to a sense of well being than a constant stream of Tweeted police blotter stuff. “SHOTS FIRED: 20 Charlotte St., Dorchester, 2 suspects in custody, 2 firearms recovered.” See? You feel better. I knew it.
4. @AmalieBenjamin Boston Globe reporter for all things Red Sox. I know her from her appearances on NESN before games, bringing the knowledge while other female correspondents seemed to bring mostly…umm…something else. You know.
Obviously I’m just getting started. Tell me what I’m missing.
