Best tweets of the week, 8/27/14

This post is something I’ve been meaning to start up on a regular basis.

As my regular readers know, I’m always trying to combat the cynicism (and frankly darkness) that mostly consumes our country (and world?).

And Twitter, for all its faults, provides a decent daily nourishment if you know where to look. And since most of you probably aren’t on Twitter, I thought I’d share some pretty good Tweets from the past week. (As well as just a few that may be newsworthy, but something you didn’t see.)

Hope they encourage you or make you think, as well!

(Legend: RT= Retweet, or repeating another person’s tweet. MT=ModifiedTweet, or modifying — usually shortening — a tweet.)

Keep the faith,

Stan R. Mitchell

Oak Ridge, Tenn.

About me: My name is Stan R. Mitchell and I’m an action fiction author with books similar to Vince Flynn, Stephen Hunter, and Tom Clancy. I’m also a prior infantry Marine with Combat Action Ribbon, and a guy who spent 10+ years in the news business, working as a reporter, editor, and publisher. I write every chance I get and I’m far too ambitious for my own good. Please consider subscribing to my blog for email alerts or taking a look at some of my action books.
