Twitter Local: @Tolles, @JimBradySP, @Vacanti, and more

All the tweets that fit… listening in on the hyperlocal Twitterverse.

This week, Groupon’s CEO poked fun at the “quiet period” the company is in now that it has filed for an initial public offering; SCVNGR’s Seth Priebatsch hates First Data – just fyi. Jim Brady of Journal Register thinks the Newspaper Association of America is getting “absurd” in its analyses. And more:
