When the National Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma was forced to close amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it left its Twitter account in the hands of Tim, the head of security.
Tim isn’t exactly a Twitter expert, though. When he introduced himself to the museum’s hundreds of thousands of followers on March 17, he admitted that he’s “new to this but excited.”
“Hello, my name is Tim and I am the head of security for The Cowboy. I have been asked to take on the additional duty of social media management while the museum is closed,” he wrote. “I’m new to this but excited. My team will also continue to protect and monitor the museum. Thanks, Tim Send.” (Whether Tim’s last name is Send or he was trying to send his tweet is unclear.)
Suffice it to say that Tim’s novice status has been evident in his tweets. Not only does the adorable security guard end most of his tweets with a sign-off — “Thanks, Tim” — but he also does adorable things like wiritng out the word “hashtag” instead of, well, using one.
At one point, Tim accidentally tweeted something he thought he was googling.
At another point, he tweeted directly at his grandson Lucas, asking him if he could see his tweets.
Security guard Tim has quickly become a social media icon.
“Can the museum have a meet and greet when this thing is over so we can meet our new local celebrity? #HashtagTheCowboy,” one user joked.
“This is the kind of hope I’ve been looking for #hashtagweloveyoutim thanks, Kayla,” another user responded using Tim’s signature social media moves.
Though the National Cowboy Museum is closed for the time being, we have a good feeling people are going to be lining up outside to meet Tim once all of this is over.
