How to follow your Local Twitter folks

This is a quick post before going to bed. I am going to answer the question on how to follow twitter folk who are in your local area.

Method 1 : Search Twitter using the name of the place as the search term. Not totally perfect but usable ( Example:  http://twitter.com/tw/search/users?q=new+york)

Method 2 : Use tweetscan.com to search for the place name.

Method 3 : Twitterlocal.net This is awesome. It lets you look at Tweets from within a few miles of a zip code and you can use the Twitter Local Client ot subscribe to the RSS feed.
Here is feed for DC ( 50 miles of zip code 20171)  http://www.twitterlocal.net/rss/20171/50 .

Method 4 : Take a look at all the people DCtwits is following .

Method 5 : Ask Newmediajim or Susan Reynolds who know everyone :)
