“Group of Seven” – Tweeters Out of Fort McMurray You Should Be Following (and Why)

Tuesday saw “68 Twitter Feeds from Fort McMurray (#ymm)” and yesterday saw “Top Ten to Follow for #OilSands Info“… So to complete this week’s Twitter hat-trick comes a third post regarding twitter folk – specifically those you should be following if you live or work in the Fort McMurray/Wood Buffalo area.

Without further adieu, here are the “Group of Seven” – Tweeters Out of Fort McMurray You Should Be Following (and Why).

“Group of Seven”

No. One@Country933 (especially with @kennyjones77 at the helm in the mornings) – Why you should follow: A great source of popular culture news (what happened on American Idol last night) and also local news/traffic (collision at bottom of Confed, don’t bother to go round to Thickwood, it’s just as bad etc.).

Never be caught unawares about traffic snarls again. But remember, tweet before you drive, not while you drive.

No. Two@FortMacTodayWhy you should follow: Our local newspaper, the Fort McMurray Today, is not only a great source for local news, but also industry happenings as well.

No. Three@rvthomas67Why you should follow: Aside from Russell being the Director of Marketing & Communications at our local college (Keyano College), he’s also the President of interPLAY Festival – a yearly summer celebration that never fails to entertain and amuse. Russell’s feed is also a great source for local news, events, and organizational info.

No. Four @Jon_TupperWhy you should follow: Not only did Jon recently become President of the Fort McMurray Chamber of Commerce, but his feed is a great combination of local news/events, industry happenings and the odd post about deep-fried pickles.

No. Five@Mix1037FMNewsWhy you should follow: The second radio feed to make the group, this particular Mix 107.3 feed (they have more than one) is always chalked to the brim with local, late-breaking news.

No. Six@Mike_Allen47 Why you should follow: Mike’s a Councillor for the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB), a past president of the Chamber of Commerce, and owner of Campbell’s Music (where the manager, Scott, is pretty much awesome btw). His feed is a good combo of local stuff and besides, it’s always good to have an ear in on local politics.

No. Seven@VolunteerWBWhy you should follow: Anyone who lives in this town knows how strong the volunteer community is… and Wood Buffalo Volunteer Centre’s mission is to “promote, develop and support volunteerism in the Wood Buffalo Region.” Following this feed will let you know where you’re needed most, so check them out and make a difference!

This is just a few of the folks tweeting out of Fort McMurray – there’s a few more out there though
