9 Ways to Find Twitter Users inYour Town…  “Finding local Twitter users to connect with is great for networking, but also for getting relevant, real-time, local information about things like jobs, news, politics, weather, food, and more.”

TownMe…  “TownMe’s mission is to bring all the world’s communities and local information online. With TownMe, anyone can add content to their favorite city or edit any page! Everyone can find something cool, interesting, or useful about their town.”

Happn.in… “Happn.in shows you what people are twittering about in your city.”
