I've long said it was a major goal to have 40,000 Twitter followers by December 11th. (OK, back in July, I might have said something closer to "I don't see any reason we can't have 100,000 followers by the end of the year." I'm not great at predicting things. I thought both Rudy Giuliani and Steve Spurrier would find success in Washington.)
But hey, 40,000 is nothing to sneeze at, and we should hit that number later today. Thanks for all the ReTweets and Follow Friday endorsements that helped get us to this magic number!
