Alright, faithful readers, it’s time to launch a new feature here at N.C. Construction Law, Policy & News, a little something I’m christening the “Construction Tweets of the Week.”
The construction industry at all levels — local, state and national — enjoys an increasingly vibrant presence on Twitter. I aim to showcase some of the voices that left an impression on me in the preceding week, as well as to facilitate ongoing discussion, whether in the Comments section of this blog and/or in the Twitterverse beyond.
You’ll note the tweets embedded here are fully interactive, with hotlinks to each Tweep’s profile, linked content and “Follow” button. The reply, retweet and “favorite” functions are also fully operational. Click early, click often, and become a part of the Construction Twitterati.
Without further ado, here are the Construction Tweets of the Week for the week ending Saturday, October 5, 2013:

2. Virginia construction attorney Chris Hill tweeted about one of the overlooked benefits of mediating construction disputes: an opportunity for the parties to air their differences openly, unfettered by the rules of evidence, before formal dispute resolution proceedings take hold:
3. AGC of America stayed on top of how the partial shutdown of the federal government is impacting the construction industry in this trio of tweets:
4. AECForensics.com tweeted a link to a guest post on its blog by Scott Wolfe, Jr. of Zlien.com, focusing on the relationship between a subcontractor’s filing of a preliminary lien notice and getting paid (hint: it helps!):
5. Last, but certainly not least, Nashville, TN construction lawyer Matthew DeVries won the Internet last week with this bon mot:
Happy tweeting! Hope to see one of your pearls of wisdom here next week!
