Maryland pols: Twitter flirts
In Tunisia and Egypt, Twitter helped topple governments. Here in Maryland, it’s helping government leaders flirt with celebrities.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake tweeted Wednesday @MayorSRB: “Just finished hosting Common at City Hall. He's here filming a movie. Ladies ... he's more fine in person (Shhh!..I didn't say that).”
Sun City Hall reporter Julie Scharper, who brought that tweet to my attention, also came across Gov. Martin O’Malley’s tweet to Bruce Springsteen last week.
Writing as @GovernorOMalley, the guitar-strumming gov tweeted @springsteen: “I quoted your @nytimes oped in a speech last night http://bit.ly/hV7EiS Next time you're in MD, let me know. I'd love to meet.”
Too soon to say if SRB’s tweet will be unrequited, but it looks like O’Malley’s is. Spokesman Rick Abbruzzese said the governor has not heard back from The Boss.
