In a move to capture our attention, Mayor Eric Garcetti is now on Snapchat. The social sharing service with messages that disappear in seconds after opening is now valued at a whopping $10 billion and growing — in large part due to a new demographic that includes politicians like Garcetti.
Garcetti's first Snapchat was of him playing the piano. While it's great to have a mayor who supports the arts (and apparently, is fairly well versed in them), it'd be pretty cool if he decides to use the social medium for a few other things. Here's the wish list...
2. Crowd-surfing at Coachella. Well, maybe not the most mayoral thing to do, but still pretty tame for former Toronto mayor Rob Ford.
4. Celebrating a Dodgers' World Series...especially because last year we had to watch the Giants win it all.
6. Sitting in traffic. This may be the #1 frustration of Angelenos. We'd love to see how the mayor handles it. It's OK...we'll excuse a little road rage.
