Change: @Zunited is out, @RedmondPost is in!

Hey Redmond Posters! Just a quick note… We have formally modified our twitter handle from @Zunited to @RedmondPost. This act effectively kills off the last bit of our presence still labeled “Zunited”. We built some great rapport around our Zunited name, and as with any change, it is difficult to re-adjust. As we look to make a future for this website, its reporting, and community; we realize the wider breadth of coverage we unlock with the Redmond Post name. http://www.twitter.com/redmondpost Please be sure to update your feeds and spread the word! Thanks. Jared Marino Owner/Manager, Redmond Post Want to help us...
