Governors On Twitter

Date: 3 January 2010

This list of Governors on Twitter includes personal as well as official accounts. As campaign accounts are found (states with elections in 2010 marked in italics), they will be added. Note that official feeds are subject to public records acts. Accounts that include “Governor” or “Gov” and a person’s name may be “official” accounts but they will no longer be current when that person leaves office.
