[May 1, 2014] SAN FRANCISCO. I had the pleasure of meeting Cory Booker again during his visit to San Francisco last week. Many people know him as the former Newark, New Jersey Mayor, or current U.S. Senator of New Jersey. I know him has a social politician!
Whereas, I make politicians look good online and in some cases manage their campaigns, Cory Booker is the actual candidate who also runs about 90% of his social media. I was floored when I asked him how he juggles it all? He said (paraphrasing that is) that basically before or after appointments, he logs into his Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts to see what is going on and either responds or sends out new material. Then, he also schedules more thought provoking or meaningful communications when he knows that he will be unavailable.
I am glad that Cory took the liberty to ReTweet my Tweet to his 1.46 million followers on Twitter and all and all, he is a really great guy.
