I made it! 20,000 Twitter followers! Thanks to everyone who joined up and/or decided they needed to hear even more of me, if only in 140 character form. I will endeavor to be even more banal and describe my breakfast more often. And of course -- as promised -- I have donated $200 to the James Randi Educational Foundation. If you want to join me and give money to this worthy organization (full disclosure: I'm the President, but it is a good cause) then go to the JREF donation page, or if you're on Twitter and have a PayPal account you can use Twitpay. Just sign up for the service (it only takes a couple of minutes) and send a Tweet that says @JREF twitpay $50 (you can add a note to the end like "because Phil made 20k tweeps") and the process will start up automatically. Thanks to everyone who followed and to those who donated. It's much appreciated, and you can know your money is going to help fight the forces of nonsense that are forever storming our gates.
