A Community Connected: Downtown is Twitter Crazy

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Eric Richardson at blogdowntown notes that everyone from coffeeshops to LA Live to condo buildings are on Twitter. What's missing from the list? The government entities in the region. No Councilmembers Jan Perry or Jose Huizar, no Community Redevelopment Agency, no neighborhood council, no LAPD Central Division. Considering the City Council mandated that all agencies explore Twitter, this could change soon. You can follow LAist on Twitter here.
