Puzzlemaster Will Shortz leads today’s tweets

What I tweeted today to @romenesko followers:
* NYT’s Will Shortz tells UPenn crowd he’s been a puzzle-head his whole life
* Editor says 13,000 copies of U. of Maryland’s Diamondback are distributed daily; only 6,000-8,000 are picked up
* Website of UK’s Daily Mail — often accused of lifting others’ work — now tops NYT in traffic
* Arkansas Democrat-Gazette refuses to run gay couple’s commitment ceremony announcement
* Gannett buys The Big Lead and other Fantasy Sports Ventures websites. Terms of deal not disclosed
* Bob Garfield: Photoshopped diabetes poster “lazy or cheap or silly, but I wouldn’t lose any sleep over it”

    It is a Compact which carries its own special proprietary mix of content.
