It was Monday morning. I was tired and my allergies were uncivil. My body was sore from yoga the day before, and just the thought of work in a few hours intensified my aches. From my window, I could see a dazzling red rose, flowing effortlessly in the morning breeze. I rolled my eyes at its beauty before painfully rising to begin my day. "Ow," I complained, as my body was a living example of "no pain, no gain. " I stretched long and hard, in an attempt to awaken my dead limbs.

W BAL's Dave Collins spotted something sparkly on Sheila Dixon 's ring finger, and soon, someone else's fingers were flying. "Dave asked dixon outside courthouse if she was wearing an engagement ring," the station's on-site Tweeter wrote. "Also from dave: dixon told jayne [ Miller ] that he asks 'stupid' questions." Soon, Dixon spokesman Scott Peterson was fielding calls. Was the divorced mayor of Baltimore settling down with her boyfriend (the current one with the comfy job in Housing, not the ex who bagged millions in tax breaks )

This could start something. Let's hope not. A Towson University student, Twitter handle @michonjanieceIV, sent out a tweet Wednesday night politely explaining to her professor that she would not be attending class the next day, in honor of Beyonce's birthday. "On September 4, 1981," the tweet reads in part, "The Lord blessed us all with the Goddess that is Queen Beyonce Knowles-Carter's birthday. Out of respect, I will not be attending class today. " @michonjanieceIV later sent out a second tweet, swearing that she'd meant to save her earlier effort as a draft, but sent it out by mistake.

No, Towson University is not suggesting anyone try a new weight loss plan. The university's TowsonUNews Twitter account was hijacked late last week, leaving some 6,121 people wondering why Towson was suggesting via Twitter that they try this new weight-loss diet. Towson media specialist Gay Pinder sheepishly acknowledged Monday morning, that, yes, she clicked on one of those "people are saying nasty things about you, click here to find out what" links late last week. That's why the notices showed up on so many people's Twitter feeds.

Gov. Martin O'Malley will hold a gathering of his Twitter followers -- the first "tweet-up' by a Maryland governor -- at the State House Monday morning to promote his 2012 legislative agenda. The event is an example of the growing importance of social media is politics and government. O'Malley is expected to unveil parts of his agenda at the event and to have a conversation with citizens who follow his postings on Twitter. "It's kind of an open discussion but focusing on the legislative agenda," said spokeswoman Takirra Winfield.

Stefon Diggs, your coach has had a bad past couple of weeks, your own blowout commitment bash notwithstanding . His former ACC Rookie of the Year quarterback transferred. Then he was pilloried for dictating the terms of that transfer release. After finally giving in, he dug in for what might be a protracted battle against James Franklin and Vanderbilt. Then you, the face of a downtrodden program's recruiting class, had to go and tweet something like this Thursday night: “Everybody need to get off Jeremy Lin egg roll and dumplings he's good though .” Diggs' questionable foray into Linsanity was deleted from his Twitter feed , but another Chinese food-inspired post remains there for all of his 4,000-plus followers to see: “Get off his egg roll and dumplins please RT @QuyeneeThePooh: @Marseanbaybee Jeremy Lin is all of it.” Given the uproar over an inappropriate ESPN headline last week that cost the responsible editor his job and a series of tasteless tweets last month that got a big-time cornerback prospect expelled from prep school , you'd think the Good Counsel star would be a little more discerning with his choice of words.

On Friday, I wrote a post entitled "The evidence is clear: Weiner sent the tweet. "  "Let me start this post by saying something that has now become quite clear: U.S. Rep.  Anthony Weiner's  (D-N.Y.)  Twitter  account was not hacked," I wrote. "He sent the image of his  penis  to a Twitter follower and has now engaged in a convoluted attempt to cover it up. " I was surprised at the backlash I received. I assumed many others had watched Weiner's dodgy, strange statements (which only made sense from the perspective of the culpable)

An amazing experience.

We do know this much.

Looks like the Orioles will make another move today. The agent for catcher Steve Clevenger tweeted this morning that his client was headed back to Baltimore to join the Orioles. Clevenger has been raking at Triple-A, hitting .328 in 36 games, so in one sense this isn't a surprise. However, Clevenger played in one of the Tides' games in Friday's doubleheader and Norfolk has a doubleheader again today. So losing a catcher can't be ideal for the Tides. Plus, the Orioles only have two more games remaining before the All-Star break.

First there was a brouhaha about the Oxford comma, prompted by a post at FiveThirtyEight  in which I was quoted. (Click here  for my post on the subject and its link to the original article.) Then screams of outrage on Twitter  followed an article by Roy Peter Clark defending the use of the passive voice. (Click here to read what I had  previously posted on the subject.*)  I appreciate editors who have undertaken the effort to master the Associated Press Stylebook  (which is more than writers for the Associated Press trouble to do)

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Orioles right-hander Bud Norris on Tuesday defended a tweet that gained national steam after it called the unprecedented extension signed by Houston Astros prospect Jonathan Singleton "terrible. " The 22-year-old Singleton, one of the top prospects in the game, was called up on Monday and signed a five-year extension with $10 million guaranteed. The deal could be worth up to $30 million over eight years if the Astros pick up three club options. The deal is the first ever long-term extension signed to a player before making his major league debut.

Even before his Soyuz flight took off May 28, Wiseman was posting selfies, including some featuring his crew mates German astronaut Alexander Gerst and Russian cosmonaut Maxim Suraev.

A tweet linking to an offensive joke came from the Anne Arundel County Sheriff's Office early Monday morning, and was taken down with a few hours. "We are investigating it. I don't know if it was a hack, I don't know what it is," said Lt. Col. Rick Tabor, the second in command to Sheriff Ron Bateman. Reb Orrell, who said he works part-time for the sheriff's office, told The Baltimore Sun he accidentally shared the American White History Month photo that contained the statement.

Ravens running back Ray Rice probably didn't have much free time this week to begin with, as the Ravens play the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday. But he had to spend part of Tuesday explaining a recent tweet anyway. Rice posted on Twitter Monday night that he was pulled over by a Baltimore County police officer because of the dark windows in his white Range Rover. Maryland State law prohibits car windows from being tinted at more than 35 percent, a limitation enacted primarily to ensure police officers can see inside vehicles as a safety measure.

By the middle of last week, just four days after the shooting at The Mall in Columbia that left three people dead, some in TV news wanted to move on. This was especially true at NBC, which was the first and most powerful voice to say that the killing of two workers at Zumiez and the suicide of the gunman who took their lives were the result of a “domestic situation.” Shortly after noon on Jan. 25, less than an hour after the shooting took...

Another shocking crime, another case of media adding confusion rather than clarity to the coverage. That's one of the key story lines so far in terms of coverage of the shooting at the Mall in Columbia that left three dead Saturday. As police continued to say after more than four days of investigation that they could find no relationship between the gunman and the victims, two tweets published Saturday that said without qualification that there was a relationship demand scrutiny, as do statements made on air at WBAL.
