Washington Tweets

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. Washington Tweets is Washington in the raw. Bill Adler tweets at @billadler.

The most annoying sound ever has to be a leaf blower. There's always one going when I work from home. #teamrake

I just ousted @shawnfwatson as the mayor of Baltimore-Washington Parkway (MD 295) - inside DC beltway on @foursquare!
