St. Louis woke up to a surprise this morning: Popular scooter startup Bird placed dozens of scooters around the city. The move has been met with some backlash from city officials, who claim that Bird received no approval from the city. While bike-sharing services LimeBike and Ofo have populated the city for the past several months, the ordinance allowing their placement around the city supposedly does not extend to scooters and other motorized vehicles.Even so, the SwipeSum staff has spent their morning whizzing around on the scooters, and offers full support to the Bird team, despite their unconventional introduction to the city. "We think Bird is a great contributor to the booming St. Louis tech scene," commented SwipeSum CEO Michael Seaman, "I'd love to see them move their offices here. We'd gladly welcome them here on Wash Ave. I know some might be shaken by their arrival, but I think this type of disruption is great for the city."Seaman continued: "If these birds fly away, I might have to go with them."
