Brooklyn tweets of the week: Cherry blossoms (yay!) and Nextdoor narcs (boo!)
A roundup of (some of) our favorite locally sourced tweets, 1990s alt-ska boy band 311 notwithstanding
Last week we introduced a (probably not entirely) new idea: The best Brooklyn tweets of the week!
This week we return with more locally-sourced twitterpations, including a heartbreaking tribute to a Very Good Boy in Fort Greene, a lovely waterfront watercolor and our favorite “Ella Emhoff” sighting to date.
Now it’s your turn: When you see something, say something, tag us and flag us.
ok so someone in my neighborhood posted on nextdoor to complain about weed and suggested calling 311.
a local hero saw this and hired nick hexum (of the band 311) on cameo to record a message for the snitch. vid in thread.

Twisted an ankle just walking on the sidewalk in Williamsburg after a single beer. Nature is healing.

Two worst times I disgraced my family as a child:
1. Told the guy at Nino’s Pizza in Sheepshead Bay not to put too much cheese on our pizza.
2. Asked for mayo on my pastrami sand at Katz’s.
Lucky to still be allowed at family functions.

Yesterday the people in the grocery store were all singing along to Dean Martin’s “That’s Amore” not sure if I was accidentally in a musical or just Bensonhurst.
