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

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
