Fiona Ma, one of San Francisco's elected representatives in the state assembly, wants to know who broke into her Prius on Wednesday, so she posted an update to Twitter.
Someone broke my blue prius' back window in front of 100 Spear on Mission St. Did anyone c anything? If so email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tx
Unfortunately, she only has 514 followers, so it's not likely the message reached any witnesses. And as Joe Eskenazi of the San Francisco Weekly points out, "driving a blue Prius in San Francisco today is like driving a white Cadillac El Dorado in Dallas in 1975." But by not posting the usual self-promotional campaign fluff that politicians usually tweet, she has managed to wrangle plenty of media interest. So in the end, somebody who saw something may just be able to help.
If so, send her an e-mail -- unless you can describe the perp in 140 characters or less, in which case, a direct message will do.
