There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
On Friday a reader responded to one of our City Paper tweets demanding to know: “Whose pun was this.” (And yes, the reader asked the question with a commanding period rather than a question mark.)
The original tweet said, “The copy-cow sandwiches will be available ’til 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.” The article that went with the tweet was about DC9 selling a new ‘Go Cluck Yourself’ sandwich during Pride month as a dig to the not-gay-friendly Chick-fil-A.
Our pun was courtesy ofElizabeth G. Tuten, City Paper’s new online engagement manager. She officially took hold of our Twitter and Facebook accounts last week. And you may have noticed that our Instagram story has been hopping lately. She got her hands on the Instagram account a few weeks ago and has been recording D.C. (Doing something cool, weird, or, ideally, both? She’ll be there with a mostly charged iPhone and a smile.) She’s also shoring up City Paper’s newsletter and email lists by better leveraging our data and analytics.
She comes to us from Communities In Schools’ national office, an education nonprofit based in Arlington, where she wrangled digital strategy, a bit of PR, and the organization’s blog. In her free time, she freelanced for DCist.
