A public records request was sent to ten members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors for the list of whom they block on their Twitter accounts, which they use for official business and personal reasons.
So far, David Campos, Mark Farrell, Jane Kim, Aaron Peskin, Katy Tang and Norman Yee report they don't block anyone on Twitter. Supervisor Eric Mar is the only member who's not replied.
Board president London Breed, who we've nicknamed Boss Breed for her imperial methods of running meetings, vindictively handing out committee assignments to colleague and resisting every attempt obtain public records from her office, had her aide state the following:"I am conferring with another city department about this portion of your request, so I'd like to invoke a 10 day extension. I will provide a response by no later than next Friday, January 29."
Our gut feeling is that Boss Breed is asking the City Attorney to give her a reason to withhold her Twitter block list. We'll see what her office next says about our request.
Malia Cohen's office provided us with a screen grab of her block list, which contains the name of three Twitter users.
From John Avalos' office, we see he has 123 folks he blocks on Twitter:

We're still waiting for Eric Mar's office to provide us with his Twitter block list, but today we received London Breed's block list. It came to two pages, which we share here. Thanks, all Supervisors, who shared your lists, which are public records.
