This was a bit of a strange week. The total number of subs were down fairly substantially, though the quality was still sky high. As a result, we struggled picking this week's accepted stories. We are fully completed with the subs for the week, so if you haven't heard from us, feel free to send a query.
The very awesome Twitter publication Thaumatrope will be publishing an interview with Tweet the Meat over a few days next week. Please give them a follow, if you don't already.
Like many of you, we have spent this week glued to our Twitter feeds waiting for the next post from our friends in the midst of a revolution in Iran. Regardless of your politics or how you feel about what's happening in Iran, it's amazing to witness history live as it happens. Who thought such a thing as Twitter would be such a monumental tool?
