Tweet the Meat News: Submission Stats for Retro

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?

Total Submissions: 60

Subs mentioning vinyl records: 6

Subs mentioning editor's favorite band: 1 (Up the Irons!)

Disco-themed subs: 5
