My Favorite Tweets: February 2012

Dieses Mal ein bisschen früher, weil ich ab morgen früh im Urlaub sein werde. War ein guter Monat! Gab ja auch genügend Gelgenheiten: Valentinstag, Greece-Bailout, Wulff-Rücktritt etc. pp. Fun, fun, fun! Und: MIT VERLINKTEN LINKS! Und now… packen, packen, packen. Ich kann mich einfach nicht entscheiden, welche Bücher ich mitnehmen soll :(
