07 Dec / The power of Katherines
Today I was poking about on Twitter when I saw that I had a new follower, who just happened to share the same first name as me. It occurred to me that this had happened the day before as well. I checked back through my followers and sure enough, there was another one. A trio of Katherines. Awesome.
An idea sprung into life in my tired little Sunday brain.
What if I located and followed every Katherine that there is on Twitter? Wouldn’t that be uber-awesome?
Well I thought it would. And there was no one else around to ask for a second opinion.
I immediately put my plan into action until Twitter announced that there’s some sort of upper limit for following people and I’d just reached it. I unfollowed a few companies that I’m pretty sure I only followed to get discount coupons three years ago, and upped my number a little bit. This was going to be such fun!
There was even a Katherine Mansfield on there. And here I was thinking she was long dead. Alive and tweeting! I then found another Katherine Mansfield.
In the immortal words of Dire Straits, Two women say they’re Mansfield, one of ’ems gotta be wrong.
But which one? I followed them both to be sure.
I even found another Katherine Hayton with a much better profile photo than me. How wonderful is that?
Now I’m just sitting on Twitter waiting for someone to follow me so I can
stalk follow yet another Katherine.
You just wait. We’re going to take over the Internet one Katherine at a time. (Also accepting Katies, Kates, Kats and Katharines but not Kathryns, Kathrines or Catherines. Gotta have some membership rules.)
