Best Twitterer — Politics - 2010
Most times after politicians are voted into public office, they stop reaching out to the people altogether except for fund-raisers or photo-ops. Not so much with Mayor Annise Parker, who is actually one of the more accessible Houston leaders in recent memory. The mayor takes to her Twitter account to talk about what she's up to, not just regurgitate boring political stuff like most other politicos dipping their feet in the social media pool. She talks about her softball games, going on her daily walks and — yes — interesting mayor-type stuff she gets to do.
