Cory Booker In The Twittersphere
By now you have probably heard about Newark Mayor Cory Booker who literally rushed into burning building to rescue his neighbor. Well, that heroic move had thrust him into instant fame. Mayor Booker has been almost working overtime to downplay his heroism and the more he downplays it, the more famous he gets. It is almost like he is getting more famous, the more he tries to humble himself and his selfless action, the users of Twitter have become more rabid in uplifting him and his actions. In a word, the Mayor has become an internet “meme”.
If you are on Twitter, you really should look at some of the Tweets about Mayor Booker. Granted, a lot of them read like Chuck Norris Jokes, but some are hilarious and others are almost super-hero-like.If you want to explore Twitter use this hashtag: #CoryBookerStories.
Here are some of the best Tweets of the day, so far, that I have seen:
@JimmyJoeHardy: “Seal Team 6″ was actually just the code word for Cory Booker.”
@MilesGrant: “When Chuck Norris has nightmares, Cory Booker turns on the light & sits with him until he falls back asleep.”
@curtjazz: “Ghosts sit around the campfire and tell Cory Booker Stories”
@jesseltaylor: “Cory Booker goes into Freddy Kreuger’s dreams and fixes Elm Street’s potholes.”
@_Thierry: Who do you think made that North Korean rocket crash into the ocean? Exactly…
@calizephyr: Cory Booker’s Form 1040 lists humanity as a dependent.
@HalSparks: 911 now forwards to Cory Booker’s cell phone
In the end, Mayor Cory Booker has his own Twitter account and even chimed in: @CoryBooker: “Grateful to #CoryBookerStories 4 bringing smiles. Fire safety, however, is a serious matter”
What is crazy and totally unplanned, this is an election year for Mayor Booker. After those Tweets, want to guess his chances of re-election?
