This is a Nice Surprise

From cleveland.com:

cleveland.com and The Plain Dealer are engaging and embracing social media conversations in a new way.
twitter-page.jpgJoin the conversation! #CLE20

Our new "Twitter Twenty" is a group of twenty well-known local tweeps (people on Twitter) who will weigh in on different local issues.  
The Twitter Twenty's comments on Twitter about the weekly topic will be featured online at:cleveland.com/twitter-twenty and will also be used in The Plain Dealer each Friday on page A-2.  Look for the week's topic on Tuesday in the same place in The Plain Dealer.
We'll pose a new question each week to the group and also post it online, so everyone can weigh in by using the Twitter hashtag #cle20.    
We will pick the first set of Twitter Twenty participants to get the ball rolling, but we plan to change the group of contributors each month. If you want to be a part of the Twitter Twenty in the future, let us know by direct messaging us on Twitter or commenting on this post.

So, let's see what the Twitter Twenty has to say on local topics -- some serious, some silly and some the group selects.  In 140 characters or less, of course.
