New site tracks government agency tweets

A new website tracks government-run Twitter accounts from around the country.

The site, launched late last year, is called GovLive tweets says it tracks 68,031 tweets from 540 agencies.

The accounts are nearly all run by local governments.

The site bears some resemblance to sites like TweetCongress and Congressional140, which both aggregate and track tweets from members of congress and committees.
