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.
