Twitter's coddling by my city is shameful. People sleep on the streets near their shiny new office. nytimes.com/2012/12/02/us/…
I would've told Twitter to enjoy their new digs to the south and watched as their employees quit to launch the next big thing in SF.
Twitter getting $22M from SF taxpayers is anti-community, anti-startup, and just fucking outrageous in this fiscal climate.
My city can't vote in a tax increase or select education board members without a vote, and yet they can give Twitter $22M just because?
How is this not just extortion? A legalized corporate protection racket. "Nice city you got here. Shame if something happened to it."
