Today in unnecessary uses of social media on the campaign trail: Joanna Rees' dog Jill has joined Twitter. The Shih Tzu pup, who we assume tweets with the assistance of a social media savvy campaign staffer because of that whole not-having-opposable-thumbs thing, has already weighed in on how she feels about Biz Stone's twitter spamming incident, but more importantly we hear she was allowed out on the campaign trail this weekend:

My mom (@joannarees) finally took me out on the #sfmayor campaign trail this weekend. Yea! Oct 10 18:48:42 via web


It is currently unclear whether Jill Rees understands that the campaign trail isn't actually a foot path near the dog run. Joanna Rees' other Shih Tzu, a male pup named Jack, could not be reached for comment on his bitch of a sister.
