Washington Tweets: Special Occupy DC Edition

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. This is a special Occupy DC edition of Washigton Tweets. Bill Adler tweets at @billadler.

Gotta hand it to @occupyDC for this one. Awesome pic: http://bit.ly/q0jBgz occupywallstreet #sep17

From what I saw, #occupydc march seemed fairly large for mid workday. Seems various groups converged. And they sure likely tied up traffic

Protest activity all over the DC metro area. Place is like SXSW for kicking capitalism in the balls. #OccupyDC

1600 block of H Street NW near the White House is currently closed to traffic because of #occupydc.
