Assemblymember Joe Lentol (D- Williamsburg, Greenpoint) has discovered Facebook. Today, I became his friend. I have joined 57 other people including Assemblymembers Steven Cymbrowitz, Jonathan Bing, Hakeem Jeffries, and Karim Camara, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Council members Steve Levin and Robert Jackson, former council candidate Evan Thies, current Council candidate Joe Lazar, and state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, to name a few. DiNapoli doesn't really count because he's just doing this to add as many friends as he can and brag about it at the National Association of State Auditors, Comptrollers and Treasurers 2010's Annual Conference on August 7-11, 2010.
Joe also has a twitter account. Can someone check with Amy to find out whether Joe knows what Twitter is? Updated!: Amy said that he wrote his first tweet all by himself:
