Y@ Speak: Tricks and treats

Posted By on Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 11:55 AM


This Halloween week, New Orleans Twitter was treated to a variety of treats: amusing dispatches from trick-or-treating and the Frenchmen Street experience, deep thoughts from Norman Robinson, and an apparently drunk or really, really excited person on Bobby Jindal's Twitter feed Friday night. But is someone playing a trick on us with this Sean Payton news? Also this week: Hurricane Sandy tweets, Steve Gleason's mohawk, and people get worked up about LSU/Bama game.
