As I mentioned to you last week, this section is inspired on Catherine Christaki‘s “Weekly Favorites” of Adventures in Freelance Translation. This time I found it hard to choose my top 5 tweets: all of them were good! So, today (yeah, just TODAY) I decided to make an exception and include an additional Top 5 Tweets, making it Top 10 instead ;).
I’ve found so many tweets and articles about Oscar Pistorius case (who hasn’t?), but of course I couldn’t chose them all. It’d be quite boring for the reader and wouldn’t definitely be within the standards of my series. Also, I found a funny tweet from Mexican-American comedian George Lopez as a reply to Danny Trejo. It reminded me so much to my childhood in Mexico, waiting for a Mexican hot corn vendor shouting on the streets “¡Lleven eloteeeeeeeeeeesssssssss!”. What else? motivational thoughts, funny tweets, and… well, just take a look!
