Metro Council candidate taking tweets to bigger, public screens
Over the past day or so, something new has popped up on a pair of electronic billboards on South Sherwood Forest Boulevard and Coursey Boulevard: tweets. One message Thursday evening bid Baton Rougeans goodnight and reminded them to lock their doors (an earlier tweet, after all, had observed them that "Crime in EBR the #1 problem"). Another tweet appearing today offers the city a good morning and asks motorists to remember to watch out for school zones. The tweets aren't overtly political in nature, though they are coming from Buddy Amoroso, who's vying for a Metro Council seat in this fall's election. "This is just kind of an experiment, and I've kind of been keeping it under wraps because I don't really want everyone else jumping into it," says Amoroso. "I know in Baton Rouge, I've been told that I am the first candidate to ever try this sort of thing, but I can promise you I won't be the last." Read the full story here. —Steve Sanoski
