St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster promoting campaign on Twitter

What’s that line about a tree falling in the forest and nobody being around to hear it?

That’s what comes to mind when Mayor Bill Foster tweets campaign news on Twitter. He launched his Twitter account last month and can be followed @Foster4Mayor.

On Friday, he told his 10 followers about his first fundraiser next week at Ferg’s Sports Bar and Grill. On Tuesday, he told 33 followers about his new website:

Foster is running against former City Council member Kathleen Ford and former City Council member and state lawmaker Rick Kriseman. They are seeking to lead Florida’s fourth-largest city.

Buzz wonders if Foster is trying to avoid the media in this campaign. He has sent only two press releases since announcing his reelection bid.
