BBC Bristol is updated across the week with the latest news, sport, features, photo galleries and a whole lot more from where you live.
BBC Bristol Twitter feed
is a quick and easy way to get these updates as and when they happen.
For each new update we provide a headline, a quick summary and a link to the full story.
You don't have to sign up to Twitter to see the feed - you can view it via this page -
But to get the best from our feed, use your Twitter account to "follow" us - that way you'll be able to see BBC Bristol updates whenever you log on to Twitter.
By following us you'll be guaranteed not to miss any of the latest news or the great features on the BBC Bristol website.
Each link is provided via a special "shortening" service, so may start with an unfamiliar name like "bit.ly". You can be sure, though, that all our links point to BBC Bristol content.

What is Twitter?
Twitter is what's known as a "microblogging" service. This simply means it's a way of sending and reading short text updates - either from people or from organisations (like BBC Bristol).
Twitter became famous when stars like Stephen Fry and Oprah Winfrey started using it to communicate directly with their fans.
Signing up to Twitter is free.
Once signed up, you can choose to "follow" (ie, see updates from) as many other Twitter users as you like.
You can access Twitter from the web or via your mobile phone. Costs of accessing via phone will vary depending on your mobile tariff.
