It was a crazy month: animals got loose in Zanesville, Klout explained its algorithm, Siri was born, Steve Jobs passed away, OccupyEverwhere gained steam, the Qwikster experiment ended, and I gained my 200th Twitter follower.
So, in honor of the Halloween weekend, I scrounged up some goodies from across the Twittersphere. These include some of my own tweets as well as tweets I favorited this past month. Some may be more like the lady on the corner giving you pennies, but some of them will also be like that one awesome guy that hands out full-sized candy bars.
