San Francisco Supervisor John Avalos fired up his rarely used Twitter account Monday to post links about … Twitter.
The District 11 supervisor has had the account since Oct. 18, 2009, according to a website that tracks the creation date of Twitter accounts. There were just three tweets on the account — until Monday, that is.
Avalos first posted “I tweet therefore I am.” That tweet was quickly followed by two links, both of which make reference to GE and Twitter. The common link between the two: taxes.
The supervisor is one on the board who has opposed the idea of giving Twitter a tax break to stay in San Francisco. The tweets about the taxes came as a broader talk regarding a unique San Francisco tax on employee stock options emerged at City Hall. The article about GE that Avalos linked to, is about how that company has avoided taxes in the United States.
