Star-Ledger reporter David Giambusso tweeted a link to his story on Booker's position on the assault weapons ban Sunday, alleging the mayor was "gun shy."
Booker retorted on his own Twitter account, defending his views on gun control and claiming Giambusso's article "mischaracterized" him. Giambusso did not back down easily, and thus a twitter-war ensued.
Booker has openly denounced other discerning opinions on his leadership and has utilized his Twitter account as a vehicle for updating followers on his initiatives and expressing his views. Booker even responded to a challenge on Twitter to live on food stamps for a week in November 2012.
