Twitter-ers Suggest Mass. Town Slogans

BOSTON (CBS) — Sometime mid-day Thursday something started on Twitter that seemed to be distracting quite a few people from whatever it was they were supposed to be doing.

While the state may have a few well-known slogans — “You Can Make It In Massachusetts” and “The Spirit of Massachusetts is the Spirit of America” – many towns don’t.

So when Salem announced its new slogan – “Still Making History” – people picked up on it and started suggesting their own slogans for other towns in the Bay State using the hashtag #MATownSlogans.

Some people took into consideration the town’s geography.

Springfield – No we’re not in New York Boston!@CGregz

Pittsfield – Might as well be New York.@CGregz

Holliston: the town next to the town where the marathon starts.@PatsPropaganda

Bourne- we’re the place with the bridges you use on your way to the rest of the Cape.@justinanderson1

Others took justice with business in the towns.
