Twitter Co-Founder Biz Stone Spams for Mayor Ed Lee – Is Twitter Now a Member of the “City Family?”

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Now, is “email marketing” spam? I think so, but, as always, You Make The Call.  

USF is all about marketing. Fiat Lux, Justitia, Hard Sell:

Anyway, read all about it, after the jump.
