Keeping in Touch with Central Florida: Who’s On Twitter

So as residents of Central Florida I’m sure we’re all looking for “the best deals” and special offers from area restaurants and businesses. Along with the most up-to-date news and information. I know I am, anyway. So I started thinking about one of the best ways to do this, and it became very evident to me: Twitter.

It’s one of the biggest digital trends right now, and there are many local businesses that offer insight, deals, and discounts via Twitter – you just have to know where to find them. So I thought I’d put together a list of some of the ones I’ve found. So here goes:

RESTAURANTS

BARS & CLUBS

BUSINESSES

NEWS/INFORMATION/MEDIA

ENTERTAINMENT

SPORTS & RECREATION

TOURISM & RESORTS

GROUPS & ORGANIZATIONS

Here’s an example of how a Twitter profile might be useful to you, showing Massage Envy on Twitter:

As you can see they’re actively engaged with their Followers, and have a nice balance of conversation, promotions, and marketing messages.

Now I know this isn’t everything. In fact, I’m already anticipating missing alot here, but hopefully this has been helpful. If you follow a Central Florida business on Twitter and don’t see it featured here, please feel free to share with us by leaving a comment in this post.

    @Matt LOL! Yeah, mine’s @Social_Citizen. I’m always getting heat for it not being anywhere near my “real” name, but I’ve had the handle for nearly three years.

    Thanks. You can see who we’re following for some more. I don’t see @disneyparks on your list either.

    But the most important one is missing… What’s your Twitter name? I searched @akaorlando but it’s not that.

    @Jubilance Cool! Thanks for stopping by.

    Yeah, I enjoy following Massage Envy, and think they are a great example of how a company should use Twitter.

    Just came by to say, I’m the “@Jubilance1922” that’s at the top of that screen shot you took for @MassageEnvy0724 🙂

    They are really great at interacting with their followers, they are one of the better companies to follow on Twitter.

    Thanks for the list!
