How do you use Twitter? Do you tweet a lot or are do you just like to lurk with the occasional tweet? No matter how you use it, if you follow CBC Live on Twitter you'll know that we like to share our favourite tweets from CBC personalities and keep you up to date with what's going on in and around the CBC, across the country. It's been a busy week in Toronto, with the NxNE and Luminato festivals taking over. The CBC crew in Toronto have certainly been taking it all in... check that out and the rest of our favourite tweets of the week:
Here we go. Stanley Cup Game 6 on HNiC!!!! pic.twitter.com/jPcyjkpY— Gerry Dee (@gerrydee) June 11, 2012
Wait. What? It may seem like a while ago already, but it was only last week that the Kings hoisted the Stanley Cup in LA. Mr. D's Gerry Dee took in Game Six before heading back to Halifax to shoot season two of his hit show.

At the Songs of Kate McGarrigle @ massey. So excited twitpic.com/9wtu0v— Rick Mercer (@rickmercer) June 15, 2012
Rick Mercer was one of the lucky ones that got to enjoy a fantastic night at Massey Hall as part of Luminato. Her sister, her children and many more paid tribute to Kate McGarrigle at Love Over and Over.
The free music continued into Saturday night, with the Flaming Lips performing at Yonge & Dundas Square for NxNE. Jian Ghomeshi was there.

Using one of those new fangled apps to combine several photos, say 'hello!' to the cast of Mr. D on set, thanks to Mark Forward.
Hundreds upon hundreds of Dorothy hopefuls have certainly done just that, all dreaming of meeting Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber further down the Over the Rainbow line. Good luck to them all!
