Twitter is a meteorologist’s best friend and worst enemy. Meteorologists send out hundreds of tweets per day, and it is such a useful tool for dispensing information. Many times, though, hype will begin and spread like fire on Twitter. Other times, it saves someone’s life. Therefore, Twitter sees the best and worst out of meteorologists every week, and it gets really fascinating to watch. These are the 10 best Tweets I found from this past week!

Its awesome to see something like this. Puts the meteorological field in perspective, and shows how far we have come.
