Ironically, a good portion of the Tworkforce at the Twitter would have prefered being HQ’ed down in nearby Brisbane, CA.

Ironically, Twitter would’ve have moved into that building at 10th and Market anyway, without any enterprise zone tax incentives.

Due to this:

“I’m done with them. That’s why the mural is painted over,” Sherry said. She said that during the 2004 restoration, which took almost a year, she worked on the mural six days a week for almost a year and was only compensated for transportation and lunch. “It was an absolute nightmare,” she said. “All they could pay me was coming out of their poor little pockets, so I accepted it because at the time I could afford to take a lot of time to do this. … So I basically just did the work, and they let it go to hell again.

There was a theory that murals discourage graffiti. I don’t know well that theory worked out…
