But when Recreation and Park Department General Manager Phil Ginsburg took over the department’s SFRecParkGM Twitter account last week, he made his entrance to the tweeting world special by noting that it coincided with a certain popular holiday celebrated by a particular subculture.
Department spokesman Elton Pon confirmed that Ginsburg’s first tweet occurred April 20. He noted that previously, the account had been linked to the department’s Facebook page and every update posted on that automatically went to the Twitter account. Starting April 20, however, Ginsburg began tweeting on the account as well.
“And he’s welcome to post whatever he likes,” Pon said with a chuckle.
