Society 2.0: This Week’s Top “Status” Report

The news took a short break this week from the ongoing oil spill chaos and directed its attention toward something that humanity craves and thrives off of: fresh scandal.  The revealing General McCrystal profile in the new issue of Rolling Stone made waves in the Twitterverse, as did the winning goal by new U.S. soccer hero , the unbearable heat and humidity of summer, and America’s obsession with the latest in Apple products.  These are the top tweets of this week.

@kzaleski: This may be my favorite post story so far – Lobbyists take on UNICORN meat?

@rainnwilson: I think Landon Donovan should be put in charge of the war in Afghanistan.
