Updated 1:10 p.m. 1/4/13: There are 7 members of Baltimore’s City Council on Twitter. William H. Cole IV, who goes by Bill Cole on Twitter, is the councilman for the city’s 11th District.
Seven of the 15 total members of Baltimore’s City Council have Twitter accounts and just four of their accounts are public and anywhere near active. (For comparison, nearly all of the 13-member D.C. city council and the 17-member Philadelphia council are active on Twitter.)
All the more reason to follow the four more actively tweeting Baltimore council members, who are sharing relevant news about holidays, council meetings, job programs and what to do in the event a savage derecho has decimated power lines.
Below we’ve assembled a list of the council members on Twitter, in descending order of their numbers of Twitter followers.
- Bernard C. “Jack” Young, City Council president
- Brandon M. Scott, 2nd District
- Nick J. Mosby, 7th District
- Bill Cole, 11th District
- Carl Stokes, 12th District (his latest tweet was on Dec. 10, 2010)
- Bill Henry, 4th District (his tweets are protected)
- Helen Holton, 8th District (her tweets are protected)
