Introducing LA Streetsblog on Twitter

A couple of weeks ago, I opened an account on twitter called "laBikes" to share information on ways to get involved in bike advocacy.  I linked to government documents, meeting announcements, Streetsblog stories and other links from around the Intenet.  I chose to focus on bikes because of the excitement left over from the Bike Summit, but what I didn’t remember is that there already was an LA Streetsblog twitter account.  After some nudging from Zach Behrens at LAist, I decided to close laBikes and reinvigorate LA Streetsblog.  And really, isn’t Streetsblog about promoting modal equality anyway.

Oh, and I was jealous of the live tweeting by IwillRide twitter of last week’s Metro Board meeting.

So, today I happily invite you to join me at the Los Angeles Streetsblog twitter page.  I’m not going to tweet every story like LAist does, but will tweet selected stories, event announcements, results and the occasional live meeting.  If you were a follower of the laBikes twitter you’ll discover that Los Angeles Streetsblog has recently requested to be a follower of you, so transitioning over should be easy.

Following up on one of the suggestions I received last weekend at the Bike Summit, Los Angeles Streetsblog has created a twitter account named "labikes" which will inform cyclists of action alerts, public meetings, and action alerts to help the community get more involved with issues as they come up.  Unlike Streetsblog or other bike […]

Streetsblog Interview: Andres Tena

|
Back on the bike: Tena after the "Bike Not to Work Day" ride last week. Late one Thursday night, or early on Friday morning depending your point of view, this April an H3 Hummer hit a cyclist, and what followed is a controversy that fuels emotions that rivals last year’s Mandeville Canyon “Road Rage Doctor” […]
