Mayor Nutter opens a Twitter account

When we interviewed him in July, we asked Nutter if he had ever considered the opportunity to connect with citizens on the microblogging site. "It's certainly something I'm taking a look at," he told us.

We can’t take credit for it, but Mayor Nutter is now tweeting.

When we interviewed him in July, we asked Nutter if he had ever considered the opportunity to connect with citizens on the microblogging site.

“It’s certainly something I’m taking a look at,” he told us.

No joke.

Yesterday, we heard from new social media communications rep Desiree Peterkin-Bell that the Mayor’s been hard at it. You can follow him @Michael_Nutter.

“He’s focused on engaging with residents as well as highlighting initiatives, programs and accomplishments of the Administration,” Peterkin-Bell said in an e-mail this morning.

Since launching October 15, the Mayor has about 330 followers. He’s been actively engaging users, using hashtags and sticking to proper twetiquette.

But, is it really him? Peterkin-Bell, officially the Mayor’s Director of Communications and Strategic Partnerships, says yes — except for photos and links. Admittedly, we never expected the man to make so many exclamations in his 140-character correspondence. He’s kind of a laid back dude, don’t you think?

Whatever the case, it sure beats the old days.
