Newsom: Zip your tweets 

San Francisco’s No. 1 social networking politician wants to limit others from tweeting and texting during public meetings.

Mayor Gavin Newsom said Tuesday his office is crafting legislation that addresses the issue of policymakers, lobbyists and commissioners using instant communication to communicate during public meetings.

“We need to temper people like me and their tweeting exuberance,” the mayor said. “I think there are a lot of lobbyists telling people how to vote and what to think and that’s not right.”
