This rocks! I feel like I’m caught up on Twitter for the day. We need to come up with an awesome title for this.

“Twitter Today”, “Today’s Gov’t Tweets”…someone has to have a cool name 🙂


Sweet Tweets – Govt Edition – Date? Want to throw govt word in there. And I’m partial to the awesome phrase “sweet tweets”


I like Tweet, the People actually… it shows that it’s not just govvies, and it alludes nicely to the government. What say ye?
