Adam Cooper: Don’t Call Him Twitterer

LA Weekly’s Erica Zora Wrightson has a wonderful profile of Mayor Villaraigosa’s social media manager Adam Cooper in this week’s People Issue.

Apparently Cooper’s a foodie. Who knew?

Cooper liked the piece too, but it seems he wasn’t too happy with the headline: “The Mayor’s Twitterer.” He piped up in the comments section of the online version of the piece.

The headline of this profile is misleading. While I advise and manage the Mayor’s social networks, I am not the guy behind @villaraigosa–the Mayor is. He reads constituents’ tweets, follows his staff members’ tweets, and tweets for himself.

In other words, don’t blame him when the mayor tweets things like this:

That 1 was all Antonio. 4 realz.
