I often find myself wondering how people got their news before the Internet. Oh, I know, the radio and newspapers provide up to date and in depth news. But before I check either of those I always check the Internet. More specifically Twitter.
Twitter is how I found out it was a snow day in Ottawa and the buses weren’t running. I was reminded on Twitter (oops) that it was actually a PD day. Twitter is very, very useful in my life.
Here are some useful people to follow on Twitter if you want to keep up with family events and news around Ottawa:
Keep up to date with everything happening at all the great museums in Ottawa by following @Civilization, @CanWarMuseum, @MuseumofNature, @scitechmuseum and @AgMuseum. And at this time of year it is a smart idea to be following @winterlude.
For information you may want to know about your kids schools, follow @OCDSB or the @OttCatholicDSB. And for updates about events or issues related to the city, follow @ottawacity or @ottawahealth, which was useful in keeping up with flu wait times back in the Fall of 2009.
And last, but not least, you can follow us at @kidsincapital!
What or who are your favorite Ottawa Twitter accounts to follow for family or kid related updates and news in the city?
