On the front page of @NYTimes

The New York Times did a little experiment last night during President Obama’s speech to Congress regarding health care. Their social media editor, Jennifer Preston, asked followers to reply with their comments via Twitter.

So, I did! And, poof!  My comments, selected from a few highlighted tweets, appeared on the front page.
