Gordon Joseloff may be Westport's first selectman, but "Amer A." is the mayor on Foursquare , a popular location-based social networking application, at least.
Using their cell phones, Foursquare users check-in to different locations they visit throughout the day. Users who have been to a place more than anyone else are crowned mayor of that location. It's based on the most days with check-ins in the past 60 days. Unless a mayor continues to check-in, someone else has the chance to steal away the title.
As of Saturday, "Amer A." was the not only the mayor of Westport, but she was also mayor of Staples High School, the Staples High School pool and "Amers House."
This Saturday marks the second annual Foursquare Day during which people can meet up at various check-in locations. And if you're wondering why Saturday is Foursquare Day, it's because April is the fourth month and 16 is four-squared.
