Back again with more great Twits to follow for your burgeoning Twitter feed. As always, follow us at @denverwestword, @cafewestword, @westword_music and @casciato.

@DenverMuseumNS: The Twitter feed of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science has a wide variety of cool nature and science-y stuff. Things like helpful tips for watching the ongoing Perseid meteor shower (2 a.m. to 3 a.m. tomorrow is the best time, apparently), announcements on free days at the museum, ticket giveaways to some of their paid events, and links to blogs they post. If you have kids or are maybe just really into science and nature, this is a can't-miss follow. Oh, and they have a sweet picture of a moose on their background image, if you like that sort of thing.

@Botanic: Continuing on the nature tip, the Denver Botanic Gardens has been known to tweet now and again. The DBG's Twitter feed is, not surprisingly, dominated by tweets about plants, gardening and the like. It's not just about the plants, though -- the DBG has other events, like concerts, from time to time, and you can find info about those here, too. If you're a fan of the DBG's languid beauty, this is a great way to stay up to date with what's happening over there.

@IKnowDenver: This Twitter feed is nothing but Denver-centric tweets from Denver locals, about Denver and all the cool things happening here. Beer, music, climbing, picnics, you name it: If it's happening in or around town, they will tweet about it. They even take questions. Just use the #askdnvr hash tag -- Twitter novices: That just means add the exact text to your tweet -- with your question and they'll do their best to answer it. Handy, like having a free, sort-of personal guide to the city.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
