Twit Art

Confession: I just got Twitter. At first I was afraid. But now I’m fully embracing what the kids call “The Twitterati.” The networking site has also helped me stay connected to the local culture in Kingston. Many local groups are embracing Twitter—keeping me in the know about what’s hip-happenin’ around town. Here is a list of our favourite Twitter pages. If you have any other suggestions please post them! We’ll keep adding to this list when we find more groups worth following.

@applecrispmusic Information and musings from the Apple Crisp collective.
@Applecrispvideo Fun music videos shot in Kingston!
@Artsking The arts council for Kingston and a 100km radius around the city. An amazing place to find out about more obscure art events.
@CKWS TV I know that not many people watch the local news, but CKWS does their thang to promote lots of local events and update their twitter account regularly.
@CRFC All the buzz from your signal, show dates and chart toppers.
@downtownktown A great place to find out what’s happening in downtown Kingston.
@FlyingVirg Updates about concerts put on by Flying V productions—shows mostly at The Grad Club.
@Kingston_Grand Find out what’s happening at Kingston’s newly renovated Grand Theatre.

@kingstonist Focusing on everything and anything going on in Kingston, ON.
@KingstonPunk Updates about concerts put on by Kingston Punk Productions—shows mostly at The Mansion and Time To Laugh.

@kingstonwriters Wordy tweets by the people who brought you the Kingston Writer’s Fest.
@Krock1057 Be the first to know when The Beatles play the K-Rock Centre!
@PartyInKingston It sounds trashy, I know, but Party In Kingston is an extremely comprehensive guide to what’s happening around town.
@QueensTV Not too many updates, but Queen’s TV seems to be getting to hang out it with footage from Girl Tal
@Reelout Kingston’s only queer film and video festival is Reelout. Not too active now, but come February this thing will be buzzing.
@TourismKingston Did you know Fort Henry was on Ghost Hunters?! I found this out from TourismKingston. Thank you.
