Tweeting Villa-Lobos

Tweets about Villa-Lobos (mainly) can be found at twitter.com/villa_lobos.

There is also a feed of Twitter posts with the string "villa-lobos", which is included in the Newsfeed link on the left side of this website.  Though there are more than a few Portuguese tweets that talk about "goin' down to villa lobos" [Parque Villa-Lobos in Sao Paulo, or Shopping Villa-Lobos in Rio], there are lots of interesting tweets, especially from musicians around the world.  Give it a try.
