@jimwatsonottawa: The Man, The Legend, The Thumbs




@jimwatsonottawa … it might not be the busiest Twitter feed in Ottawa, but it is one of the most famous.

The mayor, with thumbs of steel, produces PR tweets like no one else … volume, volume, volume. And now we bring it to you on The Bulldog as a regular feature.

What is interesting about @jimwatsonottawa are the comments from other people on the site. Some of them are critical, others talk about interesting happenings in the city, others are just PR drivel from councillors and the like. Occasionally, Watson is even dragged into a Twitter debate. Rarely, but it does happen and when it does, it’s precious.

So there you have it. Like it or hate it, The Bulldog brings you @jimwatsonottawa, the Twitter feed from the man with the rock-hard, ripped thumbs and who claims almost 100,000 followers.
