In my zealous denial that man-made global warming is happening, I’ll admit that sometimes I can come across as a bit unhinged. Well, it’s the same thing with my political beliefs.
At first blush, I might seem to have an extremely unhealthy fixation with President Barack Obama. I’ve mentioned “@BarackObama” in my tweets close to 1,000 times. 952 times, to be precise, as of the time of this writing. I mentioned “@BarackObama nearly twice as much as my next most mentioned Twitter handle, “@ClimateDepot,” who I mentioned 531 times. And those are just the number of mentions. The word “obama” appears in my tweets a whopping 2,290 times, which includes hyperlinks about Obama. In addition, I’ve mentioned “@WhiteHouse” 113 separate times in my tweets. If I were to guess, probably somewhere around 10% of my tweets is related in some way to Obama. You can witness my Obama obsession on Twitter here.
But there’s actually a good reason for my crazed behavior.
