Amazing Facts, 140 Characters at a Time*

We're approaching 20,000 followers on Twitter, which I was very excited about until I spoke with a friend at who told me they're just under 600,000. So while our loyal followers could fill Madison Square Garden (and when the arena is configured for hockey, you'd spill out into Penn Station), there's still plenty of room on the bandwagon.

*Not all facts are technically amazing. Apologies in advance for the housekeeping announcements, such as "Looks like our site is down. We hope to be back up soon" and "There's a bear wandering around my neighborhood."
