City Supervisor Blocks Professor McDaniel on Twitter

Friday, January 29, 2016
SAN FRANCISCO MAGAZINE -- But it’s John Avalos who stands out as the super-blocker of the group. The progressive lawmaker’s blocked list took nine screenshots to cover, coming in at a whopping 123 silenced tweeters (almost as many as the 203 he actually follows). The District 11 supe’s blocked list includes the developer-friendly San Francisco Housing Action Coalition, the pro-development activist group SFBARF, and a whole host of normal-seeming Twitter users. For instance, San Francisco State Professor Jason McDaniel apparently got on Avalos’ bad side after a well-barbed but civil debate about last year’s proposed moratorium on market-rate construction in the Mission.
