More and more German municipalities are using microblogging service Twitter.com – mainly as a complementary news outlet. A map provided by ifib (Institute for Information Management Bremen) displays more than 60 tweeting municipalities – Städte, Gemeinden & Kreise – in April 2011, highlighting total number of tweets and follower count. It looks like cities in the eastern federated states – except Berlin – don’t adopt the concept of microblogging and social networking by now. You can download location markers of german cities and mayors as KML (for Google Earth & Maps).
