Tweet all about it: Aspen lights up Twittersphere
Editor’s note: “Tweet All About It” typically runs Sundays, but given the inordinate number of tweets about Colorado’s legalization of marijuana and how it relates to Aspen, we’re running a special segment – call it “Weed All About It” – Thursday. • “If only Aspen, CO resident Hunter Thompson was still alive to see this” – @mikeburma• “I fully expect Aspen Institute, Silicon Flatirons, and TPI’s Aspen Forum to generate more interesting ideas now that CO has legalized pot.” – @castrotech• “If my dad were still here, we’d be moving to Aspen today.
