It can be difficult to say everything in 140 characters or fewer, but this year The Real Deal’s reporters managed to succinctly convey the thoughts, musings and random abstractions of some of the city’s most prominent real estate personalities and events in tweets. And so as we move into 2012, we’ve highlighted the most interesting and newsworthy tweets to portray 2011, which comes three years after the financial crash. Among the top 18 tweets are some that reflect the runaway revival of the rental market and the ongoing demand for high-end trophy properties.

Some of the industry’s most talked-about developments are represented, including Hudson Yards, the World Trade Center and the High Line park’s second section, the opening of which Mayor Michael Bloomberg deemed the most important event of the summer next to the release of “The Hangover 2.”

The Real Deal also documented its own events in real-time, such as the screening of “Building Stories,” a TRD-produced documentary about prolific New York City architect Costas Kondylis and our annual forum, which was structured as a debate between three sets of real estate professionals.

See below for a calendar of last year’s top tweets.
