Fact: The Internet is full of drama. Recently, I had a little bit of my own. As you may know, I've recently moved to South Granville and being interested in 'city things' I started looking at my new neighbourhood and it's potential for greatness. I sent a tweet to the South Granville Business Improvement Association about NYC's pop-up cafes that I personally think would do great in this area since there is a deficiency of outside cafe seating. However, my enthusiasm was immediately dampened by the SGBIA twitter account. The exchange went back and forth and, perhaps I was pushing too hard, but it went extremely negative. Since, the SGBIA has deleted their messages to me but I managed to screen cap about 95% of it. You can read most of the exchange here. I'm kind of astounded by their reaction and am stunned that one person who represents all the businesses along this stretch of Granville street could think this was an appropriate use of their twitter. What do you think?
What I do know is that the person who promotes South Granville on behalf of the SGBIA on twitter shouldn't have their job.
