Drum roll, please: Berkeley’s mayor is about to tweet

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Mayor Tom Bates opened a Twitter account in 2009, never once tweeted and has 32image4 followers. Now, he tells Berkeleyside’s Lance Knobel, that’s about to change. “I’m getting ready. I thought it was time for me to join the new generation.” Which got Knobel to thinking about mayors who tweet, some a little, others a lot. At the top end, Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker has tweeted 14,514 times, Oakland’s Jean Quan 1,088, San Francisco’s Ed Lee 988, and then there’s Bates, 0.
