Our good friend Rita Ballou takes the time to collect the wittiest, most topical and sometimes very random tweets each week from the Texas scene. Then, after she gathers them up, I steal 'em. And that takes us to right up, to right here. Check out "This Week in Texas Music Tweets," including a "thank you" tweet from Randy Rogers, a patriotic one from Bart Crow, and it wouldn't be a true "T.W.I.T.M.T" without a Hayes Carll tweet from Down Under.
