Sadiq Khan recently did a Twitter Q&A that wasn't as terrible as they usually are. Zac Goldsmith can't say the same.
Sure, if you take a look at #AskSadiq now there are a few Islamophobic questions, as well as ones that went unanswered on the London mayoral candidate's links to property developers - and the by now standard "duck-sized X or X-sized duck" also made a few appearances, but the majority seemed to be sensible questions.
However, given the furore surrounding David Cameron at the minute and questions being asked about his late father's offshore tax fund, as well as the Prime Minister's own involvement in it, most questions fielded to Goldsmith were always going to be loosely related to that.
One of the questions interviewers have been asking Zac throughout his campaign is whether his wealthy background impedes his chances of success. There were certainly a lot of questions targeting it.
#AskZac when you were expelled from Eton, did you worry how you'd get by, with only huge privilege and a billionaire father to fall back on?

Privilege can be a beautiful thing.
You were expelled from Eton for weed & uncle gave you a magazine to edit, could thus be young offender rehabilitation policy? #AskZac

Apparently, but unsurprisingly, Londoners don't seem to see him as one of them.
#AskZac. How did it feel going on the Tube for very first time for photoshoot. Bet it was scary not being in the Bentley with your driver.

Before long the tax avoidance questions were flooding in. Goldsmith held non-dom status in the UK until 2010, which he inherited from his billionaire father, meaning he had to pay tax on UK earnings but didn't have to pay anything on foreign income.
#AskZac Is it ok if I write "it's a private matter" on my next tax return?

After a grilling on Newsnight, Goldsmith said he'd publish his tax return.

But that didn't stop accusations about an offshore account, "which he holds wealth and property in", according to Labour MP Neil Coyle.
#AskZac If you went four stops on the Central Line westbound from Chancery Lane would you get off at Bond Street or the Cayman Islands?

People were wondering whether Zac's intention was to maintain the status quo, in more ways than one.
Are you running for mayor cos it's about bloody time we had a wealthy, non tax-paying, privately-educated white bloke in charge? #AskZac
-- Billy O. (@Hereward_W) April 8, 2016
Maintaining the status quo would include allowing luxury apartments, which end up sitting empty, popping up here, there and everywhere.
#askZac If I buy 5 apples at 45p each & 6 oranges at 70p each, how long until the greengrocers is sold off to be turned into luxury flats?

Other people took issue with Goldsmith's stance on cuts to services for disabled people. The multi-millionaire voted for the £30-a-week cut to the Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), and has defended his position in interviews multiple times since.
Like you, I believe the disabled are fundamentally lazy & deserve their benefits cut. Should we go after their access ramps next? #AskZac
-- Tommy Ettling (@maldoror84) April 8, 2016
My dog has permanently injured his leg and can no longer play fetch. How much food should I take away from him as a result? #AskZac
-- Tommy Ettling (@maldoror84) April 8, 2016
His own wealth, rightly or wrongly, plays a strong part in the argument in some people's mind.
Do you think it's morally defensible for a multimillionaire to vote in parliament for £30-a-week cuts to disability allowance? #AskZac
-- Tim Kimber (@Tim_Kimber) April 8, 2016
Another issue that was raised included the Goldsmith campaign's targeting of Asian communities with lazy stereotypes. One author on Media Diversified described the leaflets, along with other appeals made by Goldsmith, as "trying to exploit the deep hurt between Indians and Pakistanis".
#AskZac how exactly will u protect the large amounts of gold jewellery my family are apparently hoarding?

And, of course, given that this was a Q&A taking place on Twitter, there were a bunch of random and often funny questions asked.
#askzac what's your favourite sort code, account number and 3 digit security code?
-- Hayrr X (@Hayrr) April 8, 2016
would u rather fight ten duck-sized camerons or one cameron-sized duck? #AskZac

But Goldsmith did prove he has jokes of his own, giving this answer to the question: "What's your favourite dinosaur?"
