The Icon asked Alli Walbolt, our ONU intern on The Ada Icon, to explain Twitter to us and to viewers. Her explanation follows in a typical "Twitter" format. Except for her own name, the names here are imaginary.
If you have a social media question, sent it to email@example.com. We'll forward it to Alli.

@Alli_Walbolt What is Twitter?

Stepping inside Groves’ Quality Antiques and Collectibles in downtown Bluffton, there was the unmistakable smell of old furniture mixed with the distinct scent of whatever pet bunny or cat was living in the store’s animal shelter. And always — from somewhere in the store — came a cheery, “Hi Hon!” that had long been Robin Wilch’s signature greeting to her regular customers. Who knows? Maybe she called everyone that. No matter. It made each person feel special, and that was Robin’s intent.

Here’s the thing about running shoes. Just when you find the pair you really really like, the company’s “experts” decide it’s time for a change. Ask any long time runner — change is not always a good thing.

Blanchard Valley Hospital Pain Management has received numerous telephone calls from patients who are concerned about a rare form of fungal meningitis (swelling in the brain with symptoms such as headache, nausea, dizziness, and fever) that has been documented across the US in people after having injections in the back.
The FDA identified the maker of the steroid involved in many of the cases as a specialty compounding pharmacy in Massachusetts.

Let's place this photo essay in the spirit of Charles Hilty. He had a knack for taking photos of what he called town characters but printed them in the local paper under the theme "Faces you know," or similar polite headlines.
So, along comes Denny Morrison with a camera. Let me tell you, Denny is a master craftsman himself. He tools by Larry Core, who is working outside in his yard on who-know's-what. Denny stops, talks with Larry, snaps some photos and goes on his way.

Ten contestants correctly picked 14 games this week. Five of those were eliminated in the first tie-breaker.
The remaining five each picked the same two correct tie-breakers. To break the tie, we declared that the the contestant who was the earliest to enter this week's contest (of the five who tied), would be declared the winner.
Randy Stewart, who submitted his enter on Sept. 17 at 4:07 p.m., is therefore declared the winner.

Maple Crest and Bluffton community residents were treated to a professional classical concert of the highest caliber by a chamber group known as "Full Sound" on Sept. 2.
It was a bit like having the "Von Trapp Family" performing as four of the five members of the group belong to one family of Austrian background (the Loritsch family).
The four Loritsch boys range in age from 16 to 22 years old, but play their instruments (violin, viola, cello, double bass, and piano) like masters, and arrange much of the music themselves.
