Twitter

There are quite a few genealogy companies on twitter. There are quite a few employees on twitter as well.

The list below focuses on just the companies, not their owner, officers or other employees. If you really are interested in any particular company, you’ll probably find their employees followed by the company profile.
The Tweeple Directories article provides an overview of directories for twitter people, and many of these have a genealogy category.

The list also focuses on just the genealogy companies. It does not include every one-person genealogical research service, but does includes a few popular and major archives and record subscription sites that many genealogists use.

It is no surprise that not every genealogy company can be found on twitter, but it is a bit surprising how few social genealogy companies are on twitter.

This overview is also available (sans descriptions) as a Twitter List, see links below.

2009-10-30 Twitter List

Twitter has introduced the long-expected list feature (see Twitter Lists). I have made the above overview (sans descriptions) available as a twitter list. I offer several additional twitter lists, such as genealogy research services and genealogists on twitter.
