Hello, my name is Tim and I am the head of security for The Cowboy. I have been asked to take on the additional duty of social media management while the museum is closed. I’m new to this but excited. My team will also continue to protect and monitor the museum. Thanks, Tim Send pic.twitter.com/bPiXD9DoAd— Nat'l Cowboy Museum (@ncwhm) March 17, 2020
The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City has closed to the public, but they have an exponentially-growing presence at Twitter.

This is some truly genius performance art, but that doesn't make it any less funny. Really, #HashtagJohnWayne is returning results. You can follow Tim's Twitter adventures at the museum's feed, or check out the highlights at Boing Boing.
