Washington Tweets

by Bill Adler

Washington tweets. A lot. The Washington Tweets column is a collection of the most interesting, recent Washington-area tweets. These tweets reveal a candid and fascinating portrait of what is on our collective minds: Twitter gives a snapshot of what we're doing, thinking and hoping for as a group. Washington Tweets is Washington in the raw. Bill Adler tweets at @billadler.

What does it say about me that my 4-year-old put himself to sleep by chanting "Fenty. Gray. Mary Cheh." I did not teach him this, I swear!

heard, personally, from Michelle Rhee this weekend! Excited 4 what she's going to do 4 education after she steps down as Chancellor!!! #in

Spent the weekend in DC. Despite my expectations, it did not suck. Not at all.

DC fashion elegant? well not around the capitol, not in DuPont circle, not in adams morgan or columbia heights. dull, drab, bleech

Washington monument just looked like the twin towers in my camera. That was freaky.

Apparently I've been pronouncing Anacostia wrong my whole life.

Win = arriving at hotel and getting a suite instead of a room. Fail = Washington DC traffic, esp the Beltway. #BusinessTravelSucks

Parking in DC is basically a myth; as far as I have experienced, its not possible. Old Town Alexandria however, I got a primo parking spot!

Today at Dupont Circle South: only one working escalator today. What else is new? #wmata

Bout to take this walk to adams morgan get something to eat wish I had someone to go with

Love how DC voters elect Vincent Gray to be mayor and then call Michelle Rhee irresponsible for resigning. Nxt 4 yrs will suck

A girl wearing expensive, sexy thigh-high boots just walked by ... Wearing a Redskins jersey. Odd juxtaposition. God bless Adams Morgan.

super fun in DC this weekend... I want to move...

Why is Vincent Gray sitting one table over from me at Denny's?!

Caught the sunrise over the Washington Monument on my morning run. Not a bad start to the work week :)

Biggest pet peeve: when someone sits next to u on the metro despite the numerous vacant rows #dc

Back when men were men, Redskins coaches used to force their players to practice in the rain

Driving just outside of DC and I think the road crews have been working on the same stretch of the beltway for the last 15 years!

Vincent Gray likes when children fail out of DC schools... or at least he likes it more than making the unions mad

Why would a downed train at Farragut North affect my NB train to Silver Spring at Ft. Totten? You're just making stuff up, #wmata

It's only 11 am, and I've already done more than I would normally do in an entire day. At least the Fall weather has followed me back to DC.


  1. I want to know how one could mispronounce Anacostia.

  2. I think the right way is an-a-cos-ti-a and the wrong way is an-a-cos-cha.
