Texas lawmakers on Twitter

Elise Hu has compiled a list of elected officials in Austin who use Twitter, for those of you who are into such things. It's a shorter list than I would have expected, but I'll bet it grows before the legislative session is over. A few locals I can add to the list:
Houston Mayor Bill White
City Controller and Mayoral candidate Annise Parker
Roy Morales, HCDE Trustee and candidate for Mayor
Maverick Welsh, running for District H
Ed Gonzalez, running for District H
Galveston District Judge Susan Criss
Julian Castro, candidate for Mayor in San Antonio

I'm sure there are others - feel free to chime in with names in the comments - but those are ones I'm following. And if you obsess about celebrities instead of politicians, Twitter has you covered there as well.

Just a clarification - the only official campaign twitter account for Bill White for Texas is:

The other account listed belongs to a private individual and while imitation may indeed be the sincerest form of flattery, the account is not affiliated with the campaign.
