Big news: D.C's getting another brewery (@wcp)

At peak of DC's fog, visibility just 220 yards: (@capitalweather)

Just finished a mtg w/senior men in dc regarding political & civilian calls to action....dejavu of college #fraternity dynamic (@pitapolicy)

Cute spot in DC with even yummier looking food....#foodie #instagood @ wtf (Woodward Takeout Food) (@LianneFarbes)

I sure am glad @wmata replaced all of those functional, useful clocks with these huge blank computer monitors. (@nolageek)

#WMATA says one motor for brand new escalators burned up at Dupont Circle. Yes, those same new esc. that took ~9 months to install. (@kytja)

This proposed design for a uniform D.C. taxicab color is pretty sharp, I think: (@dcist_martin)

@dcist_martin or they could be yellow like every other city so tourists can find them... (@pete_gould)

Cabs should be yellow. Otherwise, yes. MT @dcist_martin This proposed design for a uniform D.C. taxi color is sharp: (@MonicaHesse)

Meet the 4 newest, possibly ugliest, D.C. taxi cab designs  (@wcp)

Which do you prefer: Jurrasic Park or Ambulance? > "DC Unveils new Taxi Cab color schemes" (@JoshuaFrankel)

Really dislike all DC's proposed taxi designs. Point of taxi colors is to make them easily distinguishable/identifiable as a cab. #votedctaxi (@mattashburn)

Where were you when GMail was down for eight minutes? (@brfreed)

Fifty-nine percent of DC restaurant workers have worked while they were sick (via @rocunited) (@paidsickdaysdc)

Super scientific study from dating website I've never heard of says DC is second most promiscuous gay city. Woohoo! (@CallKevinJ)

Ha! Now that's funny. RT "@ElizabethParker: Sometimes DC looks a lot like Paris... @ Cleveland Park Metro Station " (@KateParham)

@dcist_martin Beer & wine at Walgreens has clearly caused the collapse of civilization in Cleveland Park, as @summersgill can attest. (@kcivey)

Why can't we build enough housing in #DC? An outdated zoning code is partly to blame:  #ZRR (@betterDCregion)

Lifting DC height ban doesn't have to mean unlimited development everywhere. You can still use zoning (@badler)

Did you know the metro started with just the red line running from Farragut North to Rhode Island Ave? Check out... (@THCdc)

I Need To Move To Baltimore n Find Me A Boyfriend Cause I Haven't Found One In DC (@EgoSentric)

On a shuttle bus at BWI Airport Baltimore and there is not one actor from The Wire on board. Trip a total disaster so far. (@KristerJohnson)

A $13 corned beef sandwich on Conn Avenue? Four bucks for cole-slaw? Three bucks for a can of Dr. Brown's cream soda? Puhleeaaaaze. (@paulschwartzman)
