While updating my Twitter account recently, I noticed that womenshealth.gov created their own Twitter account and added me to their network. Kudos to the government agencies who are jumping on the Web 2.0 bandwagon and getting their information out to the community!
That got me wondering what other government agencies have created Twitter accounts, so I did some hunting and found a previous FGI blog entry and an article from CNET News stating that NASA wants to tackle Web 2.0 initiatives in order to “save itself from turning into a dinosaur in the Internet age”. It took awhile, but I finally found the official NASA Twitter account, which I stumbled upon via the NASA Edge website and their Twitter page.
And of course, FGI is on Twitter as well!
If you find any other government agencies using Twitter, please post a comment to let everyone know.
[Editor’s note 6/5/09: I deleted the link to Ron Paul’s twitter account as it was not actually from Ron Paul. Thanks Erin for alerting us!]
