This is going to be fun! Since Friday, the number of her followers has increased by almost 30,000.

Same goes for the Palin Ping! The rate of sign-ups has gone through the roof... we may soon reach 280 FReepers.

I'm sorry, but this turn of phrase bothers me.

Question, since I am new to Twitter nation, now that she will no longer be Governor, can she change her twitter name, because right now its AKGovSarahPalin, since she won’t be Governor anymore, she can’t use that name, can she change it to something else, SarahPalin, or whatever, but still keep the followers, it would be kinda dumb to have to start all over again

Why? That's how Twitter works. You are following the tweets. If you go to the link, you'll notice that they are indeed called followers.

(I know that you think about "following a leader"). I am referring to Twitter.

I don’t know. I think you can change your name. If not she’ll notify the followers about the new account.

Once she has been a governor, she can always be referred to as "Governor."

Unless, like our former Governor Bush, she gets some other title that supersedes that one. ;-)

Oh, I didn’t know that. Certainly gives it a different feel. It felt a bit Obamessiah-ish when I first read it. Thanks for the clarification (Obviously, I’m not a ‘twitter’ guy).

Dunno what the change was over the weekend. But I'm one of them as of about a minute ago.

More work for Janette “Lil Reno” Napolitano” and Homeland Security, now they will have to widen the scope of potential domestic terrorists beyond pro-lifers, flat taxers and Iraq War vets to include Sarah Tweeters, as well. </sarc>

A “follower” in this term is the same as “following” a sports team, a news cycle, or a thread here at FR

Does 2012 “Socialist A** Kicking, Eighties Girl” come above Governor??

Who’d a thunk it?

What in SamHell is a Twitter?

Is that like the little timing advance mechanism inside older model Chevrolet distributors?

I have decided that when her book comes out, I will be buying a copy for myself and at least 3 people who I think would like it but not buy it for themselves.

You can change your Twitter name quite easily in the profile settings (like for ladies assuming married names and the like). No problem!

Same thing on Facebook, she is adding about 10,000 a day since I looked - when she announced she was leaving the governorship she was under 550K, now she is at 602K.

I think it's a small, high-frequency stereo speaker component.

I don’t think she’d have to change it since all former governors can, and most are still called governor. Huckabee is often called Gov. Huckabee, same with Romney.

Just checked, it’s up to 74,189, which makes it about 34,000 more than on Friday, but it’s going up every minute. Gov. Palin’s Facebook is now up to 604,093, which is a gain of over 60,000 in the last 2 weeks, with most of it since Friday as well, and increasing by the minute. Team Sarah has increased by over 600 since Friday as well. Pam Pryor, the person in charge of SarahPAC told the AP that there has been in upsurge in donations since Friday, which is great news.

But the media won’t report growth in pro-Palin numbers. They’ll keep suffering declines while GOvernor Palin keeps enjoying a growing base of fans and followers and admirers.

Is the i in ikka long or short?

And, we are witnessing the evolution of our first female President. With each passing day this grand lady gains momentum. I believe the Presidency is indeed her destiny, and America is very fortunate for that.

Actually the word ikka was just something I thought up after my previus login was lost.

Sarah is over 650K on Facebook at this point.
