Tweekend Reading II
Where's Twitter following grew by two thirds this week...an impressive jump, but I know there are still some stragglers out there. The site is extremely fun, and truly a very social form of the much-vaunted (but often-lacking) "social media"...there are many urbanism tête-à-têtes to be had. Come join! And if you're already following, I'd definitely appreciate it if you'd consider alerting your friends on this fine Follow Friday.

That's all for this week, folks. If you have a Twitter account (or are thinking about creating one - do it!) you can follow Where @thewhereblog. If you're staunchly anti-Twitter but still want to keep up with Where's daily urbanist musings, you can subscribe to the RSS feed of my tweets. See you around!
