Cowboy Museum Assigns Security Guard to Manage Their Twitter Account, Now He Becomes An Internet Sensation

Complete with dad jokes and internet faux pas.

  • The security officer is new to Instagram and Twitter and it shows on his posts.
  • He signs each post with “Thanks, Tim” and types the word “hashtag” in place of the actual symbol.
  • People even think that it was all a marketing ploy, but the museum confirmed that Tim is real.

Just like any other establishment, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma had to close temporarily because of the coronavirus outbreak. The museum eventually decided to hand over control of its Twitter account to their security guard and now he’s officially the newest internet darling.

Tim (his last name was not provided by the museum) has become the museum’s social media manager. The thing is, the museum’s head of security is not that well-acquainted with how Twitter and Instagram works, so he basically has to wing it and learn the ropes along the way.

This resulted to awkward tweets that show Tim’s obvious lack of social media skills, but they are so endearingly funny and wholesome that he actually won the netizens’ hearts. For instance, he signs each post with “Thanks, Tim” and types the word “hashtag” in place of the actual symbol.

In his first Instagram post, Tim wrote, “I’m new to social media but excited to share what I am told is called ‘content’ on all of The Cowboy’s what I am told are “platforms” including the Twitter, the Facebook, and the Instagram. My team and I will also continue to protect and monitor the museum and grounds. Thanks, Tim We are required to smile in our official photos. Send.”

He posted photos of the museum’s cool artifacts such as the eyepatch and hat that Duke wore in the film “True Grit.” Then he finished his post with “Hashtag John Wayne. Lucas, my grandson, told me to use hashtags. Thanks, Tim.”

Tim later posted that he was finally learning how to use hashtags correctly, saying that he needs to use the pound sign from his phone.

Someone suggested to Tim that he use TikTok. Tim shared a photo of an actual clock.

In another post, he said “Twitter tips, please,” and then followed it with another tweet saying, “Sorry, thought I was Googling that.”

And he is always giving shout outs and calling the attention of his grandkids.

His antics online produced thousands of clicks per post. Needless to say, people just love Tim.

While some suggested that the whole thing was just a marketing ploy, a spokesperson for the museum confirmed that Tim’s actions are genuine.

“Tim is our actual Director of Security and Operations Services, but it has been great to have him as a deputy member of the marketing team at this difficult time.”
