Nine Must Follow Twitter Accounts For Breaking News

As everyone around the world now knows, Chicago did not have a good weekend.

By the Tribune's count 82 people were shot between Thursday and Monday---14 fatally.

You don't need me to tell you that it's crazy in our city these days and seemingly getting worse.

But if you like being informed on the true nature of what goes on when you're asleep or working, you need to be following these folks on Twitter.

In the interest of disclosure, I follow all of these individuals on Twitter and have had online conversations with some but have never met any in person.

The above recommendations are a way for the average person to literally find out whats happening in Chicago as it happens.  Most of what I read doesn't even make the news.

How else would I know that shots were fired at Ontario & State on the 4th?

Knowledge is power.  Stay informed.
