50+ government Twitter and social media directories

Last updated 7/29/11

Since launching nearly two years ago, the GovTwit social media directory has grown dramatically. It is not only one of the oldest such directories, but perhaps the largest hand-curated list of government Twitter accounts worldwide. It’s certainly not the only directory out there, however.

I’ve recently come across a number of new sites collecting government and/or elected officials’ social presence, and thought a listing of those directories might be useful for others.

If a site has a Twitter ID, it’s tagged at GovTwit.com under Directory; I’ve also created a Twitter List you can follow for the directories. If I’ve missed something, please let me know in comments, and I’ll get it added.
