A Whole Day at McDonald’s, Via Twitter

Today in questionable uses of technology: Mission Loc@l reporter Armand Emamdjomeh spent all of Saturday in the McDonald’s on 24th and Mission streets and live-tweeted his experience. His first tweet went up as the place opened at 5:54 a.m: “Sitting down to breakfast and starting day at 24th and mission mc d’s. It’s gonna be a long day.#mlnow.” The final tweet of the day went up at closing time, 11 p.m. We were a little surprised at the dearth of tweets in between. If we were trapped at a McDonald’s for 18 hours and the only thing we had to do was type our thoughts to an audience, you’d better believe we’d be deliriously tapping out knock knock jokes and surreal trains of thought by 9 a.m. We are going to give Mr. Emamdjomeh the benefit of the doubt, though, and suppose he’s working on a piece for Mission Local, and was busy taking notes and talking to people. He does weigh in with a number of fun tweets throughout the day. Our favorite: “Two boys just got up the nerve to go sit down w two girls across the restaurant. Godspeed!” [Twitter Via Mission Mission]
