    Four little birdsWe’re pleased to note that our Professional Writers of Austin friends are off suspension at Twitter. An error on Twitter’s part, apparently. (Way to go, Twitter.)

    This reminds me that we haven’t done a Twitter post in a while; our previous one listed a few follow recommendations, but we’ve met many good people in the past seven months, so it’s high time for an update.
