UC President Mark Yudof Has Not Resigned, But He’s Tweeting

I’ve been monitoring the #march4 Twitter feed. Some of it is great, some of it makes no sense, and some of it is flat-out wrong. But I was intrigued by a Tweet declaring that UC President Mark Yudof was resigning in the wake of the protests.

Alas, this appears to be wishful thinking on the students’ part and on the part of some Internet pranksters. Yudof tweeted back that he was not resigning.

Whether or not Yudof is the problem, part of the problem, or not part of the problem, here’s what I want to know: Who is watching his tweets? Surely he has something better to do during major student protests than tweet? And how much is the person watching his tweets getting paid?

Updated by Arnold: If you haven’t read the NY Times Q&A with Yudof, it’s definitely worth a look.  It’s sure nice of him to think of the UC as a cemetery.
