The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's Twitter account, operated by NEORSD Communications Director John Gonzalez, is among the most influential and revered accounts in Cleveland, a darling of the online movers and shakers.  For nearly 20,000 followers, it's a font of humor, levity and important information about toilets and so forth.

This morning, the account said it had a special message and invited folks to call (216) 361-6772 to hear it. It's a recorded Happy New Year's message, and it's making people pretty emotional.

Check it out for yourself.
