    Here's the latest example of the shipwreck going on in New Orleans. Does anyone there even bother to look at this stuff? This is what is on the top of NOLA.com's prep twitter:

    Get instant updates on #nolaprep -dumbass -ass -fuck -shit -fukkin -crap -bitch -douchebag
  2. Don't see it on their page now. What you're describing is the syntax to load the latest tweets with the #nolaprep hashtag while filtering out selected profanities. So it could be one of two things:

    1) The widget failed to load properly, displaying the search query instead of processing it in the script.
    2) The widget loaded correctly, and the search query was used as an overline in some errant C&P job.

    The first qualifies as best laid plans going awry. The second is carelessness.

    I've read tweets that were less comprehensible, though.
