Weatherbird's top tweets: Congratulations, Gokul! Live

We’ll dive right in, with the biggest spelling news of the week.

Gokul is from Chesterfield, and this was his fourth time at the national bee. After he became co­-champion, St. Louisans cheered: 

(St. Louis’ soccer team, St. Louis FC, is participating in a nationwide tournament. The next game in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup is against Kansas City’s soccer team, Sporting KC, in June.)

Gokul will certainly be telling about his experience for the rest of his life. 

During the bee, which was televised live, another contestant was asked to spell “Billiken.”

Um, we were live tweeting it because it’s awesome! And congratulations again to Gokul Venkatachalam.
