Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has gotten settled in after seven months in office and with the Democratic National Convention under his belt.

He's also a year older — 58 — as of last Sunday. To celebrate the occasion, the mayor sat down at his desk to go through a sampling of the "nice tweets" he's received from the citizens of Philadelphia.

The video comes after Development Counsellors International ranked Kenney 39th among U.S. mayors who are active on Twitter. At the time, only Kenney's tweets and social media campaigns through the end of February had been taken into account.

We did our best to round up some mean tweets for former Mayor Michael Nutter last year as a response to Jimmy Kimmel's segment on President Barack Obama. Our favorite compared Nutter to Mr. Potato Head, which he can take with him into a potential Hillary Clinton cabinet.

As for Mayor Kenney, happy belated!
