Jim Kenney is not just Philadelphia’s next mayor. He is also a prolific Twitter user. Kenney has tweeted 7,562 times, which isn’t all that much — except that he tweets himself, often using Twitter as if he’s talking to the guy next to him at a diner counter.
We here at Philadelphia magazine chronicled his tweets in January, but now that he’s actually going to be mayor, let’s winnow the field down to his top-10 tweets.
(A few of these were retweeted last night by Twitter user @treblaw; to him, I give my utmost thanks.)
