Hey Twitter! You’re worth $20 billion now or something?
So why not pay your share of your fucking taxes now? You know, pay them assuming the Newsom tax of 2004 is still in effect. You remember him, right? That Al Jareera correspondent and Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom who signed the “job-killer” Twitter tax into law less than a decade ago? (If you need help on figuring the details, I’ll provide it no prob. And yes, before he was against the Twitter tax, he signed it into law. But then a few years later he used a certain building for his campaign HQ for free ‘n stuff. Can you guess which one, Twitter? Hint: It’s a big boxy thing in the Twitterloin!)
Or, in the alternative, why not just cut a check for $20 million (or $50 million) and send it off to San Francisco’s General Fund? Wouldn’t that be more effective than the half-assed $2,000,000 Supervisor Jane Kim slush fund that was supposed to be used to provide WiFi to all the Twitterloin by now? I think so.
What’s that, no you say? No? OK, well, instead, why not just come out and say that you don’t support the unnecessary MUNI bus Twitter Line betwixt the Twitter Building and CalTrain? At least that would save us some money, right?
