I hereby dub Sen. Nikki Setzler my 3,000th follower

Nikki Setzler

Just thought I’d make note of this modest Twitter milestone….

Sometime during the past week, I passed 3,000 followers on Twitter. I’m not sure who put me over, because of the ebb and flow of followership. At one point I was at 3,002; now I’m back down to 3,000 even — followers come and go pretty quickly. It’s dynamic.

But I passed the 3,000 mark about the time Nikki Setzler started following me. So, since I know Nikki and he’s a good guy and all, I’m just going to attribute the achievement to him. Because, you know, I’d rather not call attention to the pretty, sweet-looking young woman who wants me to look at porn sites — and who started following me at about the same time.

Way to go, Nikki!

Since I made that editorial judgment rather capriciously, I should note that Nikki and I have two things in common. First, he and his wife celebrated their anniversary on Tuesday, while we had ours on Wednesday. Congrats to us all!

Also, my lawyer daughter recently started working part-time in his law office. So there’s that. But to my knowledge, that has no bearing on Nikki’s decision to start following me…

By the way, you may not be terribly impressed by my 3,000 followers. Fair enough. Obviously, I’m not Justin Bieber, and I hope you’re as happy about that as I am. But I find it respectable, especially since I’ve strictly kept the number I follow under 600, which feels about right for what I use Twitter for.

The way I look at it, I’ve got a five-to-one ratio going for me, which is nice…

    Oh, great. About one minute after I posted this, my follower count dropped to 2,999.

    That’s all right. The trend is upward. I’ll be back over 3,000 by the end of the day, or in the next couple of days. And within a couple of weeks, it will be high enough that that won’t happen any more…

      I don’t know who dropped off. Nikki’s still there. Porn Girl is still there (although I’m sure she’ll disappear soon; those always do).

      Must have been someone farther back…

    I think growth has slowed a bit. It’s taken more than 9 months to get from 3,000 to 3,100.

    Last night I had 3,099, this morning 3,101.

    Maybe I should loosen up on the number I follow. I continue to keep it under 600. But nah — I don’t want to follow more than that. I like the mix of stuff I’m getting, and don’t feel like anything is missing.

    So if growth is slower, so be it…
