… dotted by Bekki
My friends are often surprised when I mention my Twitter account. In most of my social and professional circles, creatures balk at the little blue bird icon; it is still mythically known as a trendy-device, used only to cause the ruffling of celebrity feathers.
I too was tweet-resistant … until I became one of the DottieHotties. Now that I am nested comfortably between my @handle and a witty #hashtag, I can honestly chirp that I am more connected to the Dorchester Community.
Perched on the branches below are a few of my favorite feeds to follow:
The Official Twitter feed of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA).
Favorite Tweet: Red Line: Normal service resuming. #mbta
Franklin Park and Stone Zoo
Favorite Tweet: (It was a draw, this bird simply couldn’t decide. )

This last tweet guided me towards a very important discovery; there is also a Dorchester, England. Not only has Twitter helped me to hatch a whole new view on Boston, it has aided in expanding my fledgling geography skills as well.
