31 Best Philadelphia Tweets of 2014
Last year, I named my top 10 Philadelphia tweets of 2013. In 2014, I planned to keep track of my favorite tweets week by week.
Instead, I remembered I should try to compile the year’s best tweets sometime in October. I crowdsourced a few and went back through my favorites, and compiled a list of 31 of my favorite tweets this year. Some were chosen for their newsworthiness, but most were just jokes I liked.
