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.

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

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

    Thanks for the list!

    @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.

    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.

    @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.
