Lancaster County, PA Twitter Users

Who’s on the list

Usage of the social medium Twitter is high in Lancaster. Even higher if you count this bird.

Everyone listed here lives in (or very near) Lancaster County and likes to talk about what’s going on in Lancaster. On the whole, we are a coffee- and beer-loving crowd that can be easily coaxed into spontaneous tweetups. If you’re from out of town and need a recommendation on what to do or where to go, these are good people to ask. (The people at the PA Dutch Visitors Bureau are helpful, too.) We’re also useful if you’re bored, or want to know what the weather’s like, or if you’d like to keep up with what’s going on in Lancaster when you’re away.

Please consider joining the Lancaster, PA Tweetups group on Facebook. If you wish to be added to this list, please complete the form at the bottom of this page.
