Yesterday I put together a #whyilovephilly twitter campaign, enlisting the help of over fifty news organizations, non-profits and individuals. We asked people why they loved Philly, and added in a few of our own reasons. We retweeted the ones we liked, and had conversations across the Philly-twitterverse. We did it all using #whyilvephilly.

You know what happened? There were thousands of tweets from Philadelphians and former residents. It remained almost entirely positive. We had so much to say about this city that we made it trend all day in Philadelphia and nationally for a part of the day. People talked about the sports teams, the history, cheesesteaks (of course), the independent music scene, museums, crab fries, and more. There was a lot said about crab fries.

The takeaway: people love this city for a variety of reasons, but mostly because it is home.
