I Didn't Hear this Boom Shit but the Twitters Did.

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Sun, Mar 28, 2010 at 9:50 PM

Hey, did you hear a really loud sound tonight in SE Portland? Did it sound like maybe a gun or an explosion and did it make you want to run check Twitter and see if everyone else in this whole Twit-crazed city was posting about how they heard something weird?

No one's really sure what the initial explosion-sound was, but the aftershock was the Twitters exploding with discussion of this #pdxboom! Conspiracy theories! Jokes about aliens! Triangulation!

I live right in the middle of the boom epicenter and I didn't hear anything. Looks like a lot of my neighbors heard it, though. Sigh. I wish I talked to my neighbors somewhere other than on the internet. If I wasn't so busy blogging on a Sunday night, I would throw a #pdxboom block party. And maybe if it wasn't raining.
