People who are following me on Twitter.

As you might expect, there is a story here. What would I be without a story? ๐Ÿ˜€ The outcome of this was completely UNEXPECTED!

To set the scene. I am a member of the Republican Party and an active member of our County Committee. In fact, I have been appointed the take charge monitor of our Committee’s website. [http://www.lawrencecountyrepublicans.com/] I am also the official photographer and post my photos on the website.

At our regular February monthly meeting, we were fortunate to have as speakers, Todd Sharp and Jeannie Burlsworth, Chairman of Secure Arkansas. In the course of the information Todd shared with us was some “behind the scenes happenings” being conducted by the current administration.

Todd said he belonged to Twitter. He is what I call a “mover and shaker” behind the Arkansas political scene. [If you wish to know what Todd shared with us that evening, it is on the above website. You’ll need to scroll down to the Feb. 11 post.]

Before I could post the information Todd shared on our GOP website, I needed to know a little more about it. So I googled it, but didn’t come up with much. Then I figured I’d find the information on Todd’s Twitter page. In the process of all of this, I joined Twitter.

It was not until the next day that I remembered another thing Todd had related to us that evening. He told about how much he liked Twitter and how it was a very effective tool in getting information disseminated. Then told how astonished he was [and just a little bit pleased] when he found several “movers and shakers” from the Washington D.C. political scene were following him on Twitter.

Possibly it was my search for the information Todd had given us that evening. I do not know. But the following day, I discovered that some of the very people who were following Todd were also following me on Twitter!! Now, I don’t think for a minute that Karl Rove himself is sitting at a computer following or reading my stuff on Twitter. He likely has a paid staff that does that. But, all the same, I must admit there was a rush there for a minute when I saw him listed as following me. ๐Ÿ˜€

If you will look carefully at the very top of the photo below, you will see where my browser was on the web when the photo was shot. You can see where it states: “People who follow pilgrim30” – pilgrim30 is my screen name. Rick Crawford is the fellow who is campaigning to fill the US House seat formerly occupied by Marion Berry. Rick happens to use my photos of him and one of him and his wife in his campaign bio. ๐Ÿ˜€ PhotoShop Elements 5.0 Cannon PowerShot SD 1200 IS
