Funeral Homes and More Deathcare on Twitter

Oh for Twitter in 1900!

Oh for Twitter in 1900!

A few months ago we posted a list of Twitter users who focused on deathcare; but, we did not post funeral homes, as only two were listed at the time. As you can see from the list shown below, the funeral home business is catching on to Twitter! Many of these businesses have discovered that Twitter provides a great format to post links to obituaries.

The links lead to the Twitter page for each user. You need a Twitter account to respond to these users, but you do not need an account to read their “Tweets,” or their posts on their Twitter pages. The list is categorized and each link is listed alphabetically to show that we do not favor one resource over another.

Before you get in a huff about not being mentioned in the list below, we posted links to Twitter users who have posted within the past month and who have more than one Tweet on their page…if that description doesn’t fit you, then you weren’t listed.
