If Twitter is the street, Facebook the suburban-sprawl mall, and Pinterest some kind of mail-order catalog, Instagram is the many-windowed splendor of a younger Bergdorf’s, showing all we possess or wish for, under squares of filtered glass, each photographic pane backlit 24/7. Each pane is, or intimates, an entire landscape or room. Follow enough of the international lifestyle-setters, and you’ll see: women’s fashion, men’s fashion, home or apartment décor, beautiful food, art, color-coordinated books and magazines. Of course, the tags for these old categories are updated: #birthdaylove for a many-braceleted hand holding a pink Nat Sherman; #nodiets for an aerial view of Ibérico ham on a plate.
A Twitter Account to Return Stolen Bikes + Shame Bike Thieves
According to the San Francisco Police Department’s recent report on bike thefts, 864 bikes were recovered by the police in 2012, but only 142 were returned to their owners. Fed up with this sad statistic, Officer Matt Friedman took the fight against bike theft to Twitter. Friedman started up the account @SFPDBikeTheft at the end of July, and so far, he’s made at least one bike owner very happy.
