Between the personal stories, photos, news, and event coverage, Twitter is a real-time narrative of what’s happening in Rio, right now.
Don’t worry if you don’t understand Portuguese. These Twitter accounts are either in English or heavily visual, where you don’t need to read the text to benefit.
Know a Twitter account we should add to the list? Let us know!
Updates on activities and happenings in Rio de Janeiro from the Rio Convention and Visitors Bureau. We especially like their retweets of historical moments in Rio, like Walt Disney filming on a beach in Rio in 1941 and Christ the Redeemer under construction in the 1930s.
