This week I bet Sophie Pyle is searching for a caclulator: “Someone miscounted the number of grandchildren in my grandpa’s obit.

Leslie Sanchez at CNN snaps this pic of Wolf in action, regrets “Only Repub guest missing was @kevinmaddenDC

Susanna Quinn reaches out “Saying prayers for Harry Reid’s wife, Landra. Love does heal and

she will have a speedier recovery bc she is adored.”

And something is just driving Luke Russert crazy: “After 8 straight days of absurdity on Cap Hill. Leaving work at 5 like a normal American. I’ve never looked 4ward to traffic so much.

Now… THAT’s something this traffic guru never expects to hear.

In fact, there’s probably a lot of stuff out there you’d be surprised to find out about the so called movers ‘n’ shakers in this city. That’s why I’m tracking it online and bringing you the ‘best of’ every week.

It’s called the Social Status Report… a selection of the most interesting or telling updates traversing the twitterverse from leading politicos, media heads and socialites.

It’s not limited to those who live in Washington. If they impact our city their characters count.

For instance Queen Rania reminds: “3 days until #Twestival! Join 200+ cities around world

March 25 to raise awareness & money for… you guessed it! EDUCATION!”

Since we’re on the topic of twitter – the 2010 Washington DC Twestival is this Thursday. Tweeters including social media D.C. professionals like Lisa Byrne, Nicole Nolte, feed master Shashi Bellamkonda, wine expert Charlie Adler & Greg O’Neil will be meeting at Shadow Room from 6-9PM. Your $20 donation will benefit Concern, a humanitarian organization that works to end poverty through education for kids.

Why might young Washington wait to tweet? Washington Post‘s Nakeva Corothers an avid twitter user says one misconception they may have  is that it’s a toy for “geeks.” Corothers adds “Twitter is a media source, a soap box, a marketing tool, a social network, a micro blog, a professional group chat site, an event promotion avenue and even a global education space.”

See for yourself and don’t be surprised if we start tracking  your updates. You just might have a social status worth sharing.
