Storm's a comin'! Time to freak out on the Internet!! Twitter during the last 48 hours looks like an episode of The Newsroom. Chill out, guys! Everything will be OK (unless it isn't). Also this week: tweets about Legitimate Ape Todd Akin, a local news anchor and important government spokesman get feisty, Robin Williams eats a hot dog, and tweeters react both positively and negatively to the results of our annual Best of New Orleans readers' poll.
