D.C. rain, all things Facebook and dearly departed celebrities: This week's top news tweets
It's Friday, which means it's almost time for two glorious days of unplugging (for some of us, anyway). But first, let's take a look back at a few of the stories you were most excited to share:
Rain photos! As the weather turned stormy in the D.C. area this week -- by the way, the flood warnings continue -- we asked you to send in your storm photos. Your pictures of Mother Nature's greatest hits were most popular on Twitter; on an unrelated note, a classic-car gallery wasn't far behind.
The deaths of screen legend Tony Curtis, "Titanic" star Gloria Stuart and comedian Greg Giraldo all caught your attention in a big way this week.
"The Social Network." Yep, you know the one. The site that Zuckerberg built has you swapping a story about Facebook's common myths, not to mention a column by humor writer Gene Weingarten about how much he hates it.
Last, we threw our #wpweek contest your way and asked you to sum up the week's news in a single tweet. Behold, the winners:
Time to build an ark. #wpweek
Until next week. In the meantime, don't be shy -- come talk with us on Twitter: @washingtonpost.
