Bill O'Reilly, artistic photos and the first lady handshake: Top news tweets from around the Web

By Katie Rogers
You sent us hundreds of your artistic photos in honor of FotoWeek DC. (User photo from Linda Plaisted/Washington Post).

It's Friday. All day. And it's 60 degrees in November.

Rejoice. And catch up on some of the news you missed while working for the weekend. But before you do that, a quick note:

We've been floating around a weekly feature called #wpweek; you might've seen it around. We ask you on Twitter to rehash the news from around the Web and plug it into a 140-character missive. The results are often hilarious, but it serves a bigger purpose -- we've got a lot of followers, and we want to figure out who among them is most likely to send in crazy, mixed-up, clever tweets. So hello, followers old and new. And keep your replies, friendly notes and funny little messages coming. We love them.

So let's get down to the news. Here's what a few of you had to say:

News Tweet Mash: "Conan O'Brien, Brett Favre host tea party on crippled cruise ship." #wpweek cc: @washingtonpostless than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Obama's free trade train stopped by cows on the tracks & Debt Commission report makes less of a splash than a cat drinking water #wpweekless than a minute ago via web

Here's some of the news that tweets built, your most-shared stories of the week:

What crumbs are we missing around the Web today? What caught your eye? Tell us what you're watching, reading and talking about by using #wpweek. Happy weekend!
