Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch is looking for followers on Twitter and he is using billboard space donated to the city to recruit them.
The billboard, visible from I-95, promotes Finch’s account, @MayorBillFinch.
“The billboard space is provided to the city as free advertising space by Webster Bank Arena,” said Elaine Ficarra, spokeswoman for Finch.
“The Twitter followers would remain property of
the City” after Finch leaves office, she said.
