Twitter Brawl For Wednesday, May 11th. Back in the day, people in government could only express their differences at formal debates or if they happened to see each other at a coffee cart by City Hall. But now they can fight it out whenever, wherever, and we get to witness it all! A Twitter Tift broke out today between Your Public Advocate, Bill de Blasio, and Mayor Bloomberg’s Public Advocate, Howard Wolfson, and boy, is it catty. The two are former co-workers (they both worked on Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign in 2000), but there’s no love today as they go back and forth over education cuts. I’m sure this will end soon so Howie can go back to discussing the majestic ‘be-bo-bap” in Paul Simon’s newest album, but I’m enjoying it too much to think it will be over. Who do you agree with? And how can we keep this going?
Haha, this came up at DeBlasio’s visit to CUNY earlier this evening. My prof asked DeBlasio a question about LIFO he was like, “Well actually, on Twitter today…”
