Dear Friends,

I am not a twitter person, but I did happen to look over HOT's twitter
traffic this weekend and was just overwhelmed with the messages of
successes from people.

I am really glad I saw them and feel like I would have missed out if I
did not by chance happen on these. So, hopefully you feel the same way
and here is my HOT's twitter traffic "Can't miss" tweets from the last
few days. I am sure I missed some, as I said, I am not very good at

If you are not a twitter user, you can still click on the links and
see the tweet and the pictures (lots of pictures), and follow links to
other places on the web they shared.

If you are a twitter user, I am sure you will be inspired to retweet
and follow these community builders.

On to the tweets!!


Humanitarian mapping is helping  fishermen to know better their
territories and to be aware on the importance of coastal wetlands.
