Here we go again ... tweet tweet. Or, Peep Peep. Whatever the case may be.
As an obsessive Twitter user (I'll admit to it being my favorite social media channel), every week I notice at least a handful of tweets that grab my attention for a variety of reasons. They might be funny or insightful or, on occasion, even historic. What follows are some of my favorites from the past week—locally, nationally and internationally.
This effort would be infinitely more interesting if I heard from you about what tweets you like and why. Send them to me on Twitter at @bobbbyg and I'll consider them for the next "Tweets of the Week."
Today's theme is Matzoh, Peeps and new beginnings.
This tweet was posted at 1:33 p.m. on Monday, March 25. Zach gets right to the point.
"Jews!!!! Happy Passover."
This tweet was posted at 8:21 p.m. on Monday, March 25. Until recently I thought this woman was a sitcom character as opposed to a real person.
"Calm before the storm #passover http://instagram.com/p/XTOY2ERTZA/"
This tweet was posted at 4:37 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27. LITTLE L.L. PEEP!
"Help little L.L.Peep win! Please vote and RT http://bit.ly/LL_Peep via @washingtonpost & @PeepsandCompany"

"5 people have told me Happy Easter today. I must look more Christiany than normal."
This tweet was posted at 10:55 a.m. on Saturday, March 30. I'm obsessed with Arrested Development. And, Egg.
"I'm sure Egg is a very nice person. I just don't want you spending all your money getting her all glittered up for Easter."
This tweet was posted at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 30. Thank you Mr. President.
