Weekly Twitter Round Up

Ahhh May is finally here. A beautiful weekend to re-energize a city that has been too cold for too long (yes, we do whine about the weather in BC despite seldom seeing freezing temps). I too had been under the weather for much of the past week—great for watching the Royal Weddding from my couch-- and was therefore happy to finally get out and enjoy the day. The Twitterverse was once again buzzing with all of the pageantry of the wedding, but it has also been picking up steam in Canada with the federal election tomorrow. If you are Canadian, and especially if you are a student, please make sure to vote Monday. Too many people are suffering and dying around the world right now fighting for this very privilege. If nothing else, exercise your democratic right as a show of support for them.
