Obama has nothing better to do than listen intently to my opinions

By DJ Kelly December 15, 2008

First I thought it was odd enough that Lululemon Athletica started following me on Twitter (I don’t follow them). But then this email arrived:

Hi, -dj.

Barack Obama (BarackObama) is now following your updates on Twitter.

Check out Barack Obama’s profile here:

Best,

Uh…. thanks? I guess Obama wants to hear my thoughts about how cold it is in Calgary or how we should just lock up Ignatieff and Harper in a room and let them fight club it out to create the next budget.

I think my brilliant ideas for saving America and solving the “global financial crisis” might get lost in his 154,000 + followings.

BTW isn’t it odd that Obama is following 154k people while only 149k are following him? Looks like he really is listening to the public. (Maybe more than they are listening to him? That can’t be bad can it?)
