Washington Tweets

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

Blackberry cuts led to fewer traffic accidents in UAE I suspect the same happened in DC.

Worst. Hiccups. Ever. Going on three hours. What does one do?

Phenomenon of the day: Posties showing off foreign lang. skills by reply-alling to newsroom email requesting multilingual translation help

I'm not sure how it happened but essentially I ended up on @dcwineweek crawl in Cleveland Park. Xo

A Saturday night shooting in Southeast DC killed 21-year-old Davon Paul Gray.

There is one thing anyone who drives in DC can agree one really knows how to drive in a traffic circle.

Four shot before sunrise in D.C. this morning:

there were 1500-2,000 on freedom plaza for Mayor Gray DC vote march

Why am I in Dupont Circle right now for no reason?

I'm so glad we have the leaf blowers out in full force at QUARTER TO EIGHT.

At Washington Monument grounds, joined with jobs march. #DCStatehood

Del Eleanor Holmes Norton said in interview #occupydc should be allowed to camp in McPherson Square and Freedom Plaza as long as they want.

All 13 DC Council members have pledged to stand w/ 12,000 office janitors preparing to go on strike #unions

Interesting. #WMATA started bus line Anacostia->7 corners. Full buses, then ridership dropped. Why? Riders had +$ with jobs, bought cars.

In case you missed it--new median upgrades north of Dupont Circle have inspired a lot of talk lately:

"It may take up to 3 minutes to activate your iPhone," AT+T says. The catch: We have to guess exactly *which* three minutes. #iphone4S

Question: is it possible to follow local politics and not be on twitter?

Can't believe how distorted my suitcase is after @usairways flight DCA-IND yesterday. Looks like someone drop-kicked it over the plane.

Nervous and excited.....I'm here so early, I never underestimate DC traffic.
