City Paper is not for tourists
But something wasn’t quite right about it. The first tweet, on July 27, informed the world that this was a summer-jobs project. There’s the poor design and copyediting, not up to the EOM’s usual standards. Then there was the repeated admonitions to “stay in school!” And today comes a strangely relevant tweet.
Yesterday, LL was intrigued as to why Hizzoner’s profile contained the line, “For more information about this profile contact McKennaLong & Aldridge c/o Jessica Abrahams,or Badele McQueen Esqs.”
McQueen, reached yesterday at the law firm, had no idea what was up with that.
So LL asked mayoral communications director Mafara Hobson, who says her office has nothing to do with the @MayorFenty Twitter page. Someone’s freelancing! “It’s not ours,” she e-mails. “Can you get the word out?”
A Twitter feed might be helpful for that!
