Katherine Hayton | The power of Katherines


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.)

    OMG!!! Just about to follow you on Twitter, and had a LOL (literally!) about your rules!!! And now you have a Katherine Howard, alive and tweeting, with her head miraculously restored to her neck.
    PS: the “OCD tendencies” (officially diagnosed) in me find your little bug on your blog incredibly annoying, but it’s your blog, so I won’t say any more!!!
