If it isn't nutty mayor Mike Nutter wanting to go after a magazine for possible criminal charges because of an article on race, it's city district attorney Seth Williams following porn sites via his Twitter account.
FOR AT LEAST two recent weeks, the Twitter account of District Attorney Seth Williams was following two accounts that regularly dished out nude and seminude photos of women.
The accounts, @RateMyLatin and @RateMyEbony, were suspended between March 9 and March 11 by Twitter and disappeared from the D.A.'s account. They resumed posting on March 12 but were not restored to Williams' feed.
The hilarious thing, as I heard WPHT radio's Chris Stigall mention this morning, is that Williams' spokeswoman, Tasha Jamerson, claims "If the lewd accounts 'tweet or retweet something that you write and you check to see who retweeted you or mentioned you in a tweet, you are automatically added to their followers.'" Which anyone familiar with Twitter knows is absolutely false. One must click an account's "Follow" button to actively follow another Twitter account.
I had to laugh at one of the comments at the Philly.com article which said that perhaps Williams should be investigated by the city Human Relations Commission because he didn't follow @RateMyCaucasian.
Williams apparently likes Twitter for silly purposes. He also recently offered to investigate the 76ers Andrew Bynum for possible fraud via the social media site.Posted by Hube at March 21, 2013 10:17 AM | TrackBack
