Mayor Ed Lee Is on Twitter Now; Six Followers -- and Counting
|Mayor since Jan. 5?|
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.
