Twitter is a social media site that allows users to post pictures and status updates within 140 characters. Hashtags (#) are a popular way to tweet about an event, product, company or person. Twitter also allows you to search by hashtags. For example, if you want to search happy hours, you might look for #happyhour. Here are some of the most notable food-related Tweeter accounts to follow in Minneapolis.

My Burger
@myburgerusa

My Burger currently has two locations, one in the skyway in Minneapolis and one over by Lake Calhoun. It uses its Twitter account to connect with the people that love its food and the brain power behind these meaty treats are great at replying to your questions, concerns or general comments. My Burger features its BOMs (Burger of the Month) on the page and asks followers to engage with the restaurants, helping to create new burgers and much more.

Fork in the Road is a big orange food truck that serves up delicious American fare with a twist. It keeps its Twitter account fresh and up to date with the daily menu, various changing locations and special events. It is frequently parked as part of the food truck court in St. Paul. Fork in the Road often participates in local music festivals such as the Music in the Park at Mears Park, and sometimes throughout the week, you might see it parked outside of large, local businesses.

This restaurant guide features daily discounts, specials, foodie events and more on its Twitter handle. Often you’ll find TC Food Finds linking up discounts through Groupon and Living Social – sometimes for buy-one-get-one-free deals and some for 50 percent off your next visit. It also shares foodie news that is happening in the Twin Cities. This is a great account to follow for all things food in Minnesota.
