New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is dealing with a paraody Twitter account—en Espanol—but he doesn’t seem to mind. This weekend, one person was so amused at the mayor's persistent yet poorly accented use of Spanish at press conferences that they started a Twitter feed making fun of the Mayor and @ElBloombito has been tweeting ever since. Sample tweet: " Cuidado! Stayo away para los downed linos de power. Que Electrocuto! El BUZZZ!" The account has over 13,000 followers.
Mayor Bloomberg wasn't all that offended when a reporter brought up the Spanglish parody. In fact, his official Twitter account even played along, with the line "Me escuchas, @ElBloombito?"
