Our not-so-tech-savvy Mayor Ed Lee gave in and created a Twitter account, sending out his first tweet this morning. "Good Morning, San Francisco. Short and to the Point. I love Twitter! Follow me to get real time info on sf city govt."
But the account was curiously created on Jan 5. -- six days before Lee was even appointed as interim mayor.
Until now, Lee had insisted he was no Facebook, Twitter, MySpace kind of guy, unlike former Mayor Gavin Newsom, who has more than a million followers. Lee remained inactive on the account until this morning.
Lee was even quoted in the Chronicle in mid-January, saying, "I'm not a Twitter guy. I'm not even a Facebook
guy. There was one old high school friend who wanted me to be the first
Facebook friend, and I started it and I realized, 'I haven't got time to
do this.' So I have none of those accounts. Never have."
So far, he has six followers, including SF Weekly.
