Ode to the city: A social media stream of #whyilovephilly

The folks over at Philly Love Notes have created a monster.

Today, Valentine’s Day, is their #whyilovephilly Twitter campaign. Here’s the deal:

 

This is an open invite. Tell us what you love about Philly. Retweet your favorites. Ask your followers what they love. #whyilovephilly

If you love it, set it free. That’s why #whyilovephilly works. Plenty of people have taken the hashtag and made it their own.

So, in honor of this boosterific lovefest, here is today’s stream of #whyilovephilly tweets. It’s a nice little snapshot of the City of Twitterly Love. (UPDATE: The Twitter widget below is no fun. For the raw feed of #whyilovephilly click here.)
