Biz Stone “Pressed The Wrong Button” On Votizen, Tweet Spams People He Follows With Mayor Endorsement

Apparently testing out social media-enabled voter awareness app Votizen, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has just sent out a litany of tweets to people he follows, endorsing SF candidate Ed Lee for Mayor; “Will you endorse @EdLeeforMayor for Mayor on @Votizen https://www.votizen.com/m/93t6at/,” like that times 30.

While Twitter representative Sean Garrett tweeted that Biz “press[ing] the wrong button” was responsible for the spam, I haven’t been able to replicate the effect on Votizen, which appears to be super buggy this morning. Wherever that darned button is, I can’t find it.

Of course the spam led to a barrage of ┬án00b jokes from techies, the most notable being from a tweet former Twitter VP of product and Obvious Corp co-founder Jason Goldman, “It would be awesome if @biz knew how to use @twitter better.”

Some of the best, besides Goldman’s, below:
