Government Agencies & Gov Persons on Twitter

August 8, 2010

I posted a list of media, reporters and editors who are on Twitter.  Now, I am posting a list of Government persons and Government agencies on Twitter (& Government Blogs are next).  I imagine that such lists could be used to build a new sort of  media 2.0 list for any small business, media or  PR professional in one place.

As a result, I came across this fabulous list which may be useful to media, PR, communication and public affairs proffessionals and I am reposting it to increase its circulation. It is a fabulous source.  The list  includes people and agencies of the U.S. government, organized according to the executive branch, legislative branch, and related sections.

The original source page changes from time to time so to keep up with those changes Click for RSS updates

Other resources include:

  1. Congresspedia for detailed information on members of Congress.
  2. Congressional140 provides a dynamically updating tweetstream of all of the Congress members twitter updates. Follow @congress140.
  3. GovTwit has a web directory and a Twitter account @GovTwit that encompasses U.S. federal, state, and local as well as International accounts.
  4. TweetCongress has a web directory and Twitter account @TweetCongress for a listing of members. Anyone can add new names there, too.


  1. Any people listed, other than members of Congress, do not necessarily represent their agencies.
  2. If any people or agencies are unofficial feeds, they are marked as such.
  3. If you notice anyone or anything missing, you are welcome to edit yourself; else please send a tweet to @ariherzog
