News and Media

Best social-media maven


Some folks use everyone’s favorite 140-characters-or-less social-media tool to keep up with late-breaking news; others use it to garner amusing updates on the social adventures of semi-strangers. Our favorite combination of those two particular flavors comes courtesy of Baltimore Sun reporter Julie Scharper, who, as @juliemore, reports blow-by-blow from various city government gatherings and amuses us (and probably herself, which we suspect is the point) by including the stuff that doesn’t make the minutes of the meeting—like, say, when City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young kinda makes a funny. Sun reporters’ personal feeds are among the best sources of news-junkie tidbits in the city, but Scharper is fun to have around off the clock, too, putting the “social” in social media without overbearing or oversharing.
