UK Local Councils with Twitter Feeds

If Twitter is your preferred news medium and you want to keep up with what is happening locally, for example school closures due to bad weather, use Twitter / uklocalcouncils to track down your local council. A meagre twenty-two are currently listed and you can follow individual councils or all of them (uklocalcouncils). Content varies but usually includes news about jobs, changes to refuse and recycling collection dates, school closures and impact of severe weather conditions on local services.
