Follow the Texas Historical Commission's Award-Winning Social Media

The Texas Historical Commission (THC) was recently named the top Texas state agency on Twitter by Tarleton University’s Texas Social Media Research Institute.

The THC’s Twitter handle, @TXHistComm, was noted to have the highest Klout score among state agencies assessed by the institute. Klout measures social media influence and the overall impact of social media tools, including frequency of posts, shares, reach of audience, and more.

Twitter users can follow THC and get regular brief updates on the latest agency news and activities involving historic preservation, archeology, architecture, history education, and more. But Twitter is only one of the THC’s robust social media resources:

  • Facebook: offers daily updates on the latest from THC—like, share, and comment on these developments.
  • Instagram: If you enjoy photos of historic sites and cultural spots around Texas, THC’s Instagram profile is a great spot to see and share cool photography of the real places and real stories of Texas.
  • YouTube: For the latest THC videos, check out our YouTube channel. Watch, discuss, share, or embed them on your website.

Not a fan of social media? The THC website is a treasure trove of news and information about the latest historic happenings in the agency and Texas. THC’s blog is regularly updated with key news, happenings and essays about programs, state historic sites and more. You can also sign up for a monthly e-newsletter that will bring the news and events directly to your email inbox.
