Eight Top Things Twitter Wants from San Francisco 

Wednesday, Feb 9 2011

Social networking company Twitter is threatening to move its offices to Brisbane, Calif., unless San Francisco makes concessions. What concessions is Twitter demanding?

• All new laws must be 140 characters or fewer

• Jane Kim's profile photo should be way hotter

• Willie Brown needs to stop requesting an extra 10 characters for his friends

• The mid-Market area must be renamed "Tweetville"

• The city must provide free translation services for those who wish to read tweets in Spanish, Mandarin, and Tagalog

• A majority of city voters must pass a ballot measure admitting that Facebook is a huge time suck

• David Chiu's tweets need to show some personality

• More money in tax breaks than Twitter could possibly be worth in a rational economy

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
  • Paul McCartney @ Candlestick Park
