30 Twitter accounts every San Franciscan should follow
Sure, Twitter is really good for baby animal pics and stalkin-- uh... keeping up with your favorite celebrities, but it can be even better for a bunch of other really important stuff, like mocking Mark Zuckerberg and finding bacon in SF. Here are 30 accounts you should maybe, probably, definitely, ABSOLUTELY be following if you live in SF:
And while it's fun to laugh about the guy who just peed into a bottle on the back of the bus, it's also nice to get real-time Muni updates, so at least you know for a fact that your bus is going to be late (even though you already pretty much knew that for a fact).
When the Supreme Court upheld California's ban on foie gras, who do you think Tweeted about it first? Also a great follow for food stuff you'll want to check out.

Love him or hate him, Michael Bauer is THE food guy in SF. Lots of food pics as well as thoughts about his favorite places to eat out.

You know him as @njudah. A "hyper-local" blogger who writes about life in SF (often with a MUNI twist) and has a discerning and honest point of view.

Mark Zuckerberg is basically the only celebrity we have in SF to mock. This person does it quite well.
17. Bacon Bacon

18. SF Weekly
News, culture, and other stuff about SF. Follow them to feel smarter about the city you call home.

It's a Twitter account all about handbags. NO NOT REALLY. It's about football. 49ers football to be exact.
History, current events, politics, news, restaurant openings/closings... and though this feed mainly focuses on the Lower Haight, it's worth following no matter where you live in the city. Yes, that means you too, Crocker-Amazon!!!
21. The Bay Bridge
We've been through so much with the Bay Bridge. Why not hear about it from the bridge's pensive and humorous perspective?

The Mission is changing every day and Mission Local is there to keep us posted about what's going down, especially if it involves the dreaded "gentrification" word.
