A Quick Note on the LA Streetsblog Twitter Feed

As many of you suggested last month, we’ve created a view of the Los Angeles Streetsblog twitter feed.  This way when I’m "live tweeting" an event, you don’t have to open a separate page.

But I’d like the twitter feed to be about more than just promoting Streetsblog and providing an easy way to do live updates about "what Damien is doing and witnessing."  I’d like it to be a place for our community to send information back and forth to each other, so if you write or see a good story somewhere on the Internet, send it to me and I’ll forward it along via the twitter feed.  Hopefully we’ll be able to use the feed to provide even more news and opinion to Streetsblog readers and beyond.

You can email me anytime at damien@streetsblog.org.
