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.

Hello Washington DC, I think your DC stands for "Darn Cute!" let's make it a fun weekend together! (@iamjonathancook)

@unsuckdcmetro Happy Monday to you. Red Line at Judiciary Sq - doors won't open. @FixWMATA (@el_mitso)

I really want a street vendor pretzel on my way home. But the tourists have finally left DC so there won't be any trucks. #cantwin (@TheScribblePad)

After weeks of email exchanges, finally met up with @goodiesdc today. That truck serves a damn fine root-beer float. (@brfreed)

Best part of the weekend: taking a sunrise #photo tour of #DC monuments with @SCOUTPhotoX (@laurably)

Biking from Cleveland Park to Shaw, caught in the storm, was actually really fun -- despite the 4L of water I brought into the house (@timkmak)

Today's cover story: @aubreyjwhelan reports that more than 90 D.C. cops have been arrested in less than 4 years: (@dcexaminerlocal)

We are amazed to witness your generosity in helping to support young journalists and provide meaningful coverage of violent crime. (@homicidewatch)

Miss last night's #dcstreetcar meeting on crossing the Anacostia? You can review meeting materials here: (@DCStreetcar)

@wmata Your station manager at Cleveland Park is nowhere to be found. AWOL for more than 10 minutes when I needed my SmarTrip card fixed. (@joerominiecki)

Wilson Aquatic Center didn't reopen today. @DCDPR didn't update website or vmail. Kids in bathing suits crying at entrance. (@kenarcherdc)

Suburban "town centers" might feel fake, but historic places started that way: on (@ggwash)

Got a proper watch tan while studying on the lawn today. 100% worth it. A perfect day. Although I could do without all of the tourists #DC (@MatthewFried)

this town blows my mind RT @dcist: The childhood poverty rate in D.C. stands at 30%, higher than Mexico: (@paulmcleary)
