The @City_Raccoon Returneth

After a six-hour break, the Twitter critter returns to waddling and scavenging.

It seems the reports of @City_Raccoon’s death were, if not greatly exaggerated, premature. After the unmasked bandit signed off yesterday afternoon, his outer, Jonathan Goldsbie, took some heat from the Twittersphere (some sending friendly jabs, some REAL MAD).

Maybe it was to halt the Twitter uproar, or maybe the little guy just has a insurmountable will to live, but last night, like a furry Lazarus from the pit, @City_Raccoon twitched back to life. We’re not sure if raccoons, like cats, have nine lives, but we’re pretty glad this one has at least two. Sniff sniff.
