If you want to know what your elected officials are saying, what better way to find out than to follow them on Twitter? Here’s a list to guide you on your way.

Arizona Senators on Twitter:

  • Democratic Congressman Harry Mitchell is HarryMitchell (Congressional District 5).
  • Republican Congressman Jeff Flake is JeffFlake (Congressional District 6).
  • Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is ggiffords (Congressional District 8).

Arizona State Senators on Twitter:

  • Republican Senator Jack Harper is HarperForAZ (Legislative District 4).
  • Democratic Senator Ken Cheuvront is cheuv (Legislative District 15), I think. No activity makes it hard to tell.

In the meantime, here are a few other resources you may want to follow:

    I know Penny Kotterman is on Twitter as well, just under her regular name, though I wouldn’t know it if one of my friends had re-tweeted one of her tweets.
