Via Twitter, Petaluma City Councilwoman Tiffany Renee reminded me this afternoon that she led the way in introducing social media to Sonoma County politics. After reading today’s column, she tweeted:

“Hey @petegolis I don’t take credit often, but I did break the mold for Sonoma Co candidates on Twitter in 08 race. 1164 followers + counting.”

Renee later told me she began tweeting on May 4, 2008. She didn’t mention that she has tweeted 2,055 times since then.

That’s an amazing achievement – and proof that she was there at the very beginning. You can link to her Twitter feed here.
