The State of California has posted a comprehensive Twitter directory listing state agencies and officials (include both federal officials and local officials) that are using Twitter.
I’m not aware of any other state that has provided such a comprehensive listing of public sector agencies or officials using Twitter. There are some notable Twitter / Gov 2.0 rick stars in this list, including Governor Schwarzenegger (with almost a 1/4 million followers), and Congressman Mike Honda, who recently announced a project to “crowdsource” the rediesign of his official site.
I guess the old saying “…as California goes, so goes the nation…” applies here. Hey, other 49 states – more of this please!
