Top Conservatives on Twitter

To Build The Conservative Community on Twitter

  1. Find the following strategy that works best for you. For some people that means following everyone on #TCOT. For others, a more selective strategy of just following people who you find most interesting may work better.
  2. Make a point of tweeting conservatives on the list who you don’t know, but you think might be interesting.
  3. Use the “#TCOT” tag before tweets you think might be of interest to the entire community.
  4. Tell your conservative friends who are not on Twitter to join now.

I find it both frightening and awesome that #tcot (a microblogging tag for “Top Conservatives on Twitter”) beats out any other hashtag used on Twitter by above 10,000 uses. 10,000! It tops out at 30,177 tags, with #mumbai a distant second at 19,492, and #gaza (which I’d have assumed would be on top) in fourth at 13,664.(see: http://hashtags.org/tags/most-updated )

Are liberals just not using Twitter? Have they not figured out how to use hashtags? …It appears #tlot (Top Liberals on Twitter) and #tpot (Top Progressives on Twitter) have been suggested, but so far the bandwagon remains a lonely place. (I’m partial to TPOT myself, but then I’m also partial to ridiculous puns; I’d be somewhat concerned, though, about an abundance of pot/kettle/black jokes at the expense of any forward-thinking progressives.)

Still. Something must be done. The right is trailblazing the microblogging scene while the left is caught resting on its laurels. This cannot stand!
