State of the Edmonton Twittersphere – July 2009

Welcome to the seventh State of the Edmonton Twittersphere, my look at the intersection of Twitter and Edmonton. You can see last month’s stats here.

The Last 24 Hours on Twitter: Storm in Edmonton

We’ve been dealing with a pretty massive storm here in Edmonton for the last 24 hours or so (Edmonton Journal, iNews880).

Edmonton Media Organizations on Twitter – Update 1

Back on March 3rd, I posted a list of local media organizations on Twitter. At that time, there were roughly a dozen organizations with official accounts. It was easier to count the number of organizations using Twitter, than those not using it. That’s no longer the case. Here are the local media organizations using Twitter… Reads more »

Our fourth “official” meetup for Twitter users in the Edmonton area was a success! About 45 people stopped by Vintage Lounge this evening. The team at Vintage deserve major thanks for handling everything so smoothly, as we had many more people show up than was guesstimated a week or two ago. Actually, I was quite… Reads more »
