All week long, Morning Edition and NPR's food blog, The Salt, have beefed up their on-air and online "Meat Week" coverage with some fun conversations in social media. Based on Twitter chatter, it seems that "Meat Week" was a success. We might even go as far as to say it was well done.

So, with NPR wrapping up its "Meat Week" coverage today, the Communications team couldn't help but share our favorite tweets from the week. Check them out below:

If i had to imagine my happiest place it would be this middle ground transition from #meatweek to #pieweek on @npr

Waking up to @NPR to learn it's #meatweek! Oh good, I have not had a reason to wear my formal hot dog earrings.
