02 Dec #Bacon Hashtag on Twitter
If you haven’t read part one of our journey to find bacon inspired communities and the famous #bacon hashtag online, you may want to put it in reverse and visit this page first: #bacon on Facebook. As for the rest of you, follow me as we begin a tour of our favorite hashtag (#bacon, as if you didn’t already know) on the Twitter community.
Twitter didn’t seem very interesting to me at first, but after a second look I know I misjudged this online social media platform. After taking a second look at how Twitter works, I was actually very impressed. If you haven’t made a profile there yet, you really should and after reading this article, you will probably find the motivation to start tweeting like the rest.
#bacon for Twitter Followers
On Twitter, there is a plethora of profiles dedicated to the love of all things bacon, and one of the cool things about Twitter is you know every time #bacon is on the news! Here are some top tweeters to follow if you want your Twitter account to be submerged in memes, articles, images, news stories and links about bacon.
Situated in Baltimore, Maryland, is the Bacon Ministry, spreading the message of bacon evangelism. The profile is by @SpamSpam, the Bacon Bishop of Baltimore, on behalf of the Ministry of Bacon, spreading the gospel of all things bacon. You need to join the other 6K+ followers to see these tweets but with a name like that, you know they’re gonna be great!
The name Bacon Today may sound familiar if you read my first article featuring the #bacon hashtag. Rest assured, this crew is hamming it up on Twitter too (pun intended)! If you are going to be on Twitter, you should totally follow Bacon Today to keep up with bacon news. They have over 7000 followers and post a wide variety of tweets you’re sure to find interesting. Remember that post about bacon strip ornaments? Check it out.
With a staggering 36.000+ followers, All Bacon delivers exactly that, in the form of information, stories, images and humor. #Bacon is the focus of this Twitter profile and there’s no denying their agenda …sharing the love and awe of all things bacon. Their slogan? All Bacon, all the time! Sounds like my kinda people!
Another great act to follow on Twitter is called Bacon Unwrapped, founded by none other than Heather Lauer. If that name sounds familiar to you, it should! Lauer is the author of a book I posted about earlier in the month called Bacon: A Love Story. (See it here.) She says bacon is the best meat ever, and is proud to have been a bacon eater since the 1970s, and a bacon blogger since 2005. To date, she has almost 3000 followers on Twitter and if there’s a food with bacon in it, you can pretty much bet that Heather knows about it or has tried it. See below.
Dear Bacon is a rising star in the Twitter world with just a few followers and a strong passion for bacon, using the #bacon hashtag liberally while sharing jokes, memes and photographs. I would say it is safe to expect big things from Dear Bacon and the Dear Bacon dot com website.
Next on the list is Mr. Baconpants, a Twitter user from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who blogs mostly about bacon and beer. It’s also home to Bacon LIVE, which he introduces as the worlds ONLY podcast about bacon. He has almost two thousand followers so it’s safe to say Mr. Baconpants is kind of a big deal on Twitter. Oh yeah, and apparently he can cook too!
Next on our list of Twitter users is Bacon Scouts. These guys have a slightly different back story …and a darn good job. Established in July of 2013, Bacon Scouts have one important goal and it involves bacon. Are you ready for their job description? To search for, test, and sell the most incredible bacon from across America… I could totally do that!
These bacon inspired individuals are just a few of the many people you can socialize with if you amble over to Twitter and search using the #bacon hashtag. First on your list of people to visit should be the My Pig Me Up dedicated (and adorably pink!) Twitter profile featuring our very own VIP, Lillian Tram. She’s a big deal around here…
Thanks for reading Part Two of our spotlight on the #bacon hashtag and the various online communities where you can converse with complete strangers about bacon, restoring your faith in the world one crunchy crispy salty bite at a time.
Coming soon…. Part Three
