Trends that Matter – Follow Local Twitter Trends

Over that past few months we have been creating Trendsmap Twitter alerts via localised Twitter accounts. The reason we’ve done this is that we realised early on that the trends that matter the most are those that actually mean something to you.

So with this in mind we decided that we needed to have the ability to alert our Trendsmap users to events and breaking stories that were happening ‘close to home’…

Introducing Trendsmap alerts via Localised Twitter Accounts!

As an example, I follow the TrendsAustralia Twitter account to keep up to date with what is happening on the Trendsmap Australia page. And I also follow the  TrendsMelbourne Twitter account to keep on top of local news and events.

You can do the same! (In about 5 seconds):

  1. Go to
  2. Click on a Country or City link. I’m going to click on ‘United States‘.
  3. Then click on the ‘Follow on Twitterlink at the top right of the next screen.

  4. Done!

Below is a list of the Current top 10 City Twitter Accounts ranked by followers.

  1. Johannesburg : TrendsJoBurg
  2. Melbourne : TrendsMelbourne
  3. Cape Town : TrendsCapeTown
  4. Toronto : TrendsToronto
  5. Lima : TrendsLima
  6. Lagos : TrendsLagos
  7. Montreal : TrendsMontreal

  10. Buenos Aires : TrendsBA

** UPDATE **

The wonderful John Barratt has just made it even easier for you to follow your local Twitter trends.

You can still follow the steps above if you’re keen to discover and browse the actual content on Trendsmap as well as ‘follow’ on Twitter.

However, if you just want to go straight to a list of links to the various Twitter Accounts, then go here.
