If you love the city as much as we do, you’ve got to be following these accounts.
It’s 2019 people. A study from the Pew Research Center shows that over two-thirds of U.S. adults (68%) get their news on social media and as the years fly, a percentage like that dosen’t sound so crazy these days.
But can you blame us? We live in a city that is constantly on the go – it’s not like we can whip out the newspaper at our desk job or while we’re stuck in traffic. And as much as we hate to admit it, Twitter delivers us more news nowadays than any other source out there. Print publications and media outlets often times post breaking stories in 140 characters or less, filling us in with information with something as little as a notification. And we can’t forget about the celebrities – how else would we know about all the hot spots in the city to grab lunch or to take a selfie?
Tweeting is almost as common as breathing nowadays, so you might as well try your best to consume quality content (and air…) We’ve made a list of 10 Twitter accounts that everyone in L.A. should follow!
For all your vintage photo cravings.

People in LA are deathly afraid of gluten. I swear to god, you could rob a liquor store in this city with a bagel.
