Today was a day in history for Audi as they finally announced that the TT-RS would come to the U.S.. In fact they announced via Twitter and Facebook that the TT-RS gathered over 11,500 signatures in the one month the online petition was going. Some of those people may even be buyers (I'm sure they hope so). The petition was done over Facebook during the last month. [Twitter]

Ken Block, of the DC shoe company, announced the release of Gymkhana three today. In fact it was Gymkhana three part 2! Finally we get some hoonage. It is a little over 7 minutes long and worth pretty much every second of your time. Block tweeted out the link just a few hours before this post, and the video already has a few hundred hits--with plenty more to come. [Twitter]

The Detroit auto show, also known as the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), announced over Twitter today that the 2011 NAIAS Charity Preview organization has been re-aligned.

It essentially comes down to two of the events charities will now receive benefits fro the Detroit Auto Dealers Association instead of proceeds from the charity preview. [Twitter]

Among the flurry of news flowing from Chrysler today on social media (and it was literally a mountain full), Chrysler tweeted a video excerpt from Sergio Marchionne meeting with Chrysler Dealers. Sergio Marchionne is the CEO of Chrysler/Fiat and he met with dealers to show off the new and refreshed vehicles for 2011. Marchionne explained to the dealers how Fiat and Chrysler working together will help save both time and money in development. [Twitter]
