Amazon in Austin?

In what wasn’t the most surprising move, Austin was included among 20 cities identified by Amazon Thursday morning to still be in the running for the company’s second headquarters.

The list is narrowed down from the more than 200 cities that submitted applications for consideration last year, the American-Statesman reports. 

Austinites had opinions, and unlike your Amazon order, they didn’t take two days to arrive.

Some were excited by the prospect of Amazon calling Austin home:

Excited that Austin region has advanced to second round of #Amazon HQ2. Look forward to presenting the best of what our region has to offer and how we can partner with Amazon.
