tweet image.jpgThese digital influencers brought our opera hashtags to TRENDING status each of the three times they've convened. They're hilarious, fun, and twitter-powerful.

We've recently accepted our first string of #TWEETSQUAD members and we wanted to learn a little more about them...

(Interested in joining this rad group the evening of April 26? Apply to tweet here.)
