Now this is what a Twitter Feed is supposed to be. The modern equivalent of a silent radio. A ticker tape of new information. Is this writer obsessed with Twitter? Quite possibly, mainly because it can keep us apprised of breaking news. Here we have an example of multiple reports coming in of actual news. This story was covered by two of Rogers Park's bloggers Bill Morton & Autumn Davids.

Apparently there is fear of a sneaky underhanded closing of Gale Elementary School located at 1631 w Jonquil Terrace in the North of Howard area of Rogers Park. There already was word on the street that a new charter school is to open in Rogers Park called the Orange school and another charter school opened in nearby West Ridge in the last year (UNO in the old St. Scholastica Academy building). Word 49 reports that a public meeting was held at Willye B. White park by teachers and parents to protest charter schools. They had expected the alderman to come out in support of their cause. Word 49 captured photographs of the protesters marching towards the alderman's house. According to Rogers Park in 1000 words the teachers and parents are afraid that Gale School will eventually be closed since their attendance is so low and they wanted firm support from the alderman to protect their school.
