This post is about a year or two overdue but I’m pleased to announce that Streetsblog New York City is now tweeting. For breaking local livable streets news, short-form commentary, and bits and pieces that might not appear on the blog, follow @StreetsblogNYC.

We’ll give followers the jump on lots of stories before they make it onto the blog. Here’s the advance report on last night’s Manhattan CB 6 meeting, ahead of Noah’s post coming up later today.

This also means that the race is on to be the first Streetsblog with a 10,000-strong Twitter audience, so we really have no choice but to keep the stream lively. There’s a lot of ground to cover to catch @StreetsblogSF and their 6,000 followers.

  • Don’t forget @streetsblog, the feed for the Streetsblog Network…3,700 and growing by the minute!

Using the Hive Mind to Make Biking Safer

|
Whenever anyone asks me why I like Twitter so much, I tell them it’s about the information. If you follow the right people (and who that is obviously depends entirely on you) you can tap into an amazing amount of great stuff from around the Internet (and real life too). It’s like having a custom-made […]
