Y@ Speak: Twitter feuds, Y@ Speak Awards, and a goodbye

Posted By on Tue, May 28, 2013 at 10:28 AM

While not quite at an Amanda Bynes level, New Orleans Twitter saw some drama this week. A well-know local blogger took issue with NOLA.com over its new dining Twitter handle, there were dispatches from the protest at the site of the new Planned Parenthood facility, and people had some things to say about the finalists in the inaugural Y@ Speak Awards (sorry, moms).

Also, some programming notes: first, be sure to vote in the awards and to RSVP to our event on June 3 at the Freret Street PubliQ House!

Second, I am sad to say that this my last Y@ Speak! After more than three magical years with Gambit, I am moving on to Renaissance Publishing where I've accepted an associate editor position. I'm leaving this roundup in the capable hands of staff writer Alex Woodward. It's been fun doin' the tweets for you guys! Thanks for reading, sharing and for sending me ideas for tweets to include that I usually ignored.
