What’s Twitter Founder Biz Stone up to today – is he spamming Twitter to boost the election chances of Interim Mayor and “Twitter-tax” tax-cutter Ed Lee?

It sure looks that way:

Now, you know what’s funny about the whole corrupt Twitterloin real estate deal is that the “job-killing” “Twitter Tax” was signed into law back in 2004 by former Mayor / Ed Lee mentor Gavin Newsom.

Isn’t that funny?

Does Biz Stone realize what he’s doing?

Does he realize what this looks like?
