(CBS) – It seems like just about everybody is Tweeting these days – even a fallen tree in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood that is goading city government to remove it from the public way.

Meet @RogersParkTree, the subject of a Twitter page that began after the demise of its namesake object at Rogers and Sheridan. The tree’s bio says the tree has been rotting on the sidewalk for a month. Among its barbed postings:

Hyperlocal blog Chevanston reported on the campaign, which presumably is the brainchild of a neighborhood resident who’s getting tired of waiting on work crews. RogersParkTree has begun “following” local Ald. Joe Moore — getting some apparent digs in.

Would love to catch @JoeMoore49‘s series on condo ownership, but, um, I am still a tree, so unless someone moves me… I’ll be here.

A message was left Monday afternoon for Moore at his 49th Ward office.

There is a growing tradition on Twitter of giving voice to animals or inanimate objects. Who can forget the Tweets posted from the empty chair  that was harangued onstage by actor Clint Eastwood at least year’s Republican National Convention?
