Best of Miami 2010: Best Twitter Feed
In anticipation of the upcoming Best of Miami issue hitting
newsstands June 17, here is a sneak peek at one category and its winner.
Many people familiar with 31-year-old Alfred Spellman probably don't realize the wealth of knowledge and topics that the Rakontur producer (Cocaine Cowboys, The U) frequently tweets. While most Twitter users babble about nonsense on the social networking tool, in 140 characters or fewer, Spellman lets us know about inner happenings at Rakontur (FYI, Dawg Fight, the back-yard fighter documentary based on a 2008 New Times story, comes out this fall) and comments on drug-related news and general Miami fucked-up-ness.
Choice tweets include:
"wonder where this guy's headed: Former Nazi and convicted child molester dies in Chile at 88 (New York Times)"
"Electric Pickle, why'd you have to cross the picket line and let Jersey Shore shoot?"
"keepin it classy, GOP ----> Republican congressman shouts 'baby killer' at Stupak on House floor during vote."
