Washington Tweets

Union Station photograph 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

Nothing like the scent of electrical fires on the blue line to wake you on a Monday! Oh, #WMATA

Bag checks at college park @unsuckdcmetro

Just ran through the Mall in DC. Lots of tourists OBSESSED with squirrels--videotaping, photographing them, as if they'd never seen one!

wow, totally have to recommend charlottesville as a weekend-away destination for dc residents. just enough to do--at the right prices.

Why does MPD have its name? B/c when created in 1861, had jurisdiction over all of "metro DC": Washington City, G'town and; Washington County.

I made it to Dupont Circle for my first day. It involved 2 trains, some running, and crossing the Potomac. So far, so good. #DC #newjob

Any DC-area people able to watch my mini dachshund this weekend?? Would be forever grateful!!

Another reason #DC is a better place to live than NYC: trash day. #nyversusdc (Love the irony in the photo.)

Outrageous Reporters arrested for recording of a D.C. Taxi Meeting--this assault on journalism has to end

After arrests, taxi drivers say don't abolish Taxi Commission, reform it

Dear taxi cabs of DC: there are a billion customers waiting for you at Union Station. Where are you?

DC taxi cab commission won't talk to WTOP reporters either, security tossed them out and locked doors

Love Vincent Gray getting tested in honor of National HIV Testing Day

More to come I'm sure: RT @dcist_martin All told, these 12 folks make 73 people arrested for DC voting rights since April.

If Nats Park garages were built to last 10-12 years, but nobody parks there, does their lifespan go up 10-12 more years? Hope not.

Is it okay for tourists to swim along the Reflecting Pool in DC?

I see it's drive like an idiot day in DC

To be honest do they really need the festival in dc anymore with all this crime going on during it?

Driving thru dc on a Sunday makes me realize how tourists are out of their minds. Totally oblivious of streets, let alone cars.

Nothing caps off a weekend like a $100 parking ticket. Thanks dc, I can't help that I'm from Maryland...parking 30 sec from the border.

new fave restaurant in DC? #hook on M. good friends/scallops/wine. GREAT time.

Over 500 people have signed the petition to restore the Connecticut Ave sidewalk + more every day: #DC

Lunch. Ethiopian food is yum! DC has Jerusalem beat in this department.

dc police chief says crime is down in city but that's pushed crime to metro and policing the train and bus system is difficult.

if you're driving in DC to Georgia Ave . . . u must get a full tank of gas, cause thats what it's gonna take for you 2 find parking !

Good Morning world. Going into DC. Maybe a quick bite 4 lunch. I hear there is an Olive Oil store around Chevy Chase?? got to check it out!
