Hurricane Irene may have fizzled out but El Bloomito is still going strong with over 20,000 followerusos.
New Yorker Rachel Figueroa-Levin created the Twitter account to parody the Mayor’s Spanish storm updates with humorous tweets like “Hola Newo Yorko! El stormo grande is mucho dangeroso!”
Rachel promises “I’ll continue El Bloombito as long as it stays fun. I probably won’t comment on other things- I don’t want it to turn into some political statement feed. I’ll just stick to Spanglish translations of city news.”
