RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve got something somewhat curious and important I want to tell you. Over the years I’ve said I don’t tweet, don’t Twitter, and so forth and so on. But I have an account. It’s there. I wanted to establish the account in my name. There are a bunch of fake Rush Limbaugh Twitter accounts. But I’ve decided to actually activate it now and use it for strategic purposes since it has become such an effective means of informing people outside the bounds of this program. Now, I don’t know… Those of you who already tweet, to “follow” me, you would simply find me at @RushLimbaugh. Just follow me If you don’t have a Twitter account, it’s simple and it’s free. You can just go sign up, just go to Twitter, sign up, get an account, and then say you want to follow @RushLimbaugh. And the reason for this is I’ve got a couple of things — well, one now, but it’s one really important thing — I want to put up that I want everybody to be able to see. I don’t want to take up a lot of broadcast time with this. This is one of the actual advantages of being able to tweet it out there is that I don’t have to waste a bunch of valuable broadcast time with this. But it’s stuff… Plus, I don’t have to read the whole thing to you. This is a way you can actually see it.
And then the great thing about it is that you can “retweet” it, meaning just hit the retweet button and it goes to every other person that you follow. And it will, in geometric proportions, end up saturating the “Twitterverse.” So I’m not gonna put it up now. I will later today after some of you have had time to go join up. If you want to. It’s totally up to you. (interruption) Yeah, this is real. I’m not gonna be a daily tweeter. (interruption) I don’t know what’s gotten into me. There are just some things I want people to see, some things I want to share with people — both items in the news and things going on with this asinine circumstance/situation with me — that are important for people to see. I’m not gonna waste time on the radio reading word-for-word some of these things but they’re really worth people seeing, and being informed about.
We’re already up on Facebook, so we may as well close the loop and join Twitter. Like I say, I’ve had a Twitter account just to lock it up. I’ve had a genuine Rush Limbaugh Twitter account (not a fake, phony one) just to keep it under my domain control. So we will be tweeting some stuff now and then, primarily items of interest to you. I’m not gonna be hanging on Twitter 15 hours a day and tweeting, “I just had breakfast! I hope you have a wonderful day! Bye! Here’s a picture of me eating some corn flakes!” None of that stuff. You don’t need to be worrying about that. No, it’s just things I want people to see. And there’s a really good one today that I want people to see and I’m gonna tweet it out so give you a chance here to sign up, you just go to Twitter and set up an account. It’s easy and it’s free, and then just follow RUSH: Folks, you ought to be here in the EIB broadcast facility. Dawn and Mr. Snerdley cannot believe that I have ventured out into the Twitterverse. I didn’t tell you. We were there with my name just to occupy it. Here’s the bottom line. Everybody has been asking me what they can do to help in all of this, and I’ve been saying, “Just do what you’ve been doing. If you listen, keep listening, that’s fine.” There’s an army out there that wants to be mobilized. And so I figure, use Twitter for it. I’m just gonna put some things on Twitter that you can help us circulate. It’s that simple. You just retweet them. We’ll put ’em up there. You retweet it. We’ll take care of everything else.
All you have to do is sign up. There’s no cost. You’re not gonna be attacked by a bunch of hooligans and hobgoblins. You follow who you want. You don’t have to follow anybody at all but me. Just go to Twitter.com and sign up, get an account and follow Rush Limbaugh. And then you have to do nothing more than push one button on Twitter to retweet what we put there for you to read, and you will be helping. It’s that simple. It’s gonna be fun as well. As I say, it’s a way of circulating things above and beyond the program without having to use valuable programming time. So there’s a couple things that I’m gonna put on Twitter, you just follow Rush Limbaugh, you will find ’em and you retweet those out and we’ll wait to put them up there to give enough of you time to sign up or decide if you want a Twitter account. By no means are you under orders to do it, but you’ve been asking how you can help, and this is one way.
