During the discussion over the city’s upcoming long-term plan at the Lewisville City Council retreat this weekend, the idea of using social media as a way to promote participation came up. Everyone in the room was well aware that face-to-face communication will still be the crux of the process, but there’s no denying the fact that social media outlets provide a new way to expand participation in Lewisville and encourage communication between city leaders, businesses, the media, and residents.

That said, some of that is easier said than done, especially if you don’t know where to look or who to follow. With so many possible subjects to explore on various social media networks, seemingly routine municipal matters can quickly sputter down your news feed when competing against pictures of grumpy cats and quotes from famous people superimposed over solemn photographs.

The purpose of this post is to point the average reader in the direction of social media accounts and websites that anyone active with city issues can–and should–actively engage with. To make it this bit more dynamic than just a list of links, I’ll be using an embedded Storify article:
