I used Storify, a neat tool which aggregates tweets (or other snippets of social media) and presents them in one tidy package to pull together local reactions to yesterday’s Morning Edition segment on Anacostia. What you see above is a screen shot of the collection. The full, interactive “story” is below the jump:

On your mind, right now: Michelle Rhee http://dcentric.wamu.org/2010/09/on-your-mind-right-now-michelle-rhee/ http://dcentric.wamu.org/2010/09/on-your-mind-right-now-michelle-rhee/#comments Wed, 15 Sep 2010 20:39:48 +0000 Anna http://dcentric.wamu.org/?p=771 Continue reading ]]>

Michelle Rhee

DCPS Chancellor Michelle Rhee is such a polarizing figure that yesterday, some voters seemed to be voting either for or against her, rather than for Vince Gray or Adrian Fenty. After Fenty’s loss, Rhee has been on a lot of D.C. minds. Will she stay under Gray? Or will she move on?

I thought it would be interesting to take a look at what people were saying about her, on Twitter.

Using a nifty tool called Storify, I gathered tweets about Rhee and nestled them in this neat little box:

Two hours ago, there was an erroneous rumor that Rhee had resigned via email, but TBD just published a post titled, “Michelle Rhee has not quit“, so I’m inclined to believe them, instead.
