John Cote is all over the whole fake Twitter account trend that’s hitting the race for San Francisco Mayor. The news from yesterday evening is that Fake @Yee4Mayor got suspended for running afoul of Twitter guidelines, but it came back yesterday night with a new handle: @NotLelandYee.
This is the kind of stuff you’ll get from the anti Leland accounts:
“I was for sharkballsoup, but they met my price. Now I’m against it. No soup for you!”
Back in the day, operatives of those opposing Dr. Yee, PhD would post hit websites like the defunct AreYouKiddingMee.com, now they just Twitter away.
Speaking of which, find a similarly-defunct account with hit Twits against Rose Pak, the albatross around Mayor Edwin Lee’s neck, below. These Tweets were taken down as well, after a short time. Remember, Tweeters:
It’s better to burn brightly for half as long than to be a dim lingering light.
Remember just a few days back when somebody, somebody working for a mayoral candidate or somebody at SF Weekly, somebody like that, posted a Twitter account using the handle FakeRosePak?
Relive those times right here. First check out some of the entries (read them from the bottom if you want) and then check out the graphics, below.
(This version doesn’t have “Activist” as an occupation listed after “Dragon Lady” – my memory’s fading already, but I think activist was in there for a while.)
