Top Twitter Accounts to Follow in Rochester, Minnesota

Rochester has a constant influx and efflux of people. When I moved back to Rochester a few months ago, it was like entering into a different world. It took me quite some time to figure out who to follow on social media to find the real pulse of the community.

Here are some entrepreneurs, media outlets, and organizations that are very active on Twitter to help you find the most updated information on the Rochester community.

And, of course, you can find us on Twitter as well at the handle @RochesterRising.
