A twittermeme popped up last night which featured little known facts about Sarah Palin. Here’s an example:
Little Known Fact: It’s not raining in DC. Those are God’s tears of joy that McCain picked Sarah Palin. (@MichaelTurk)
Started in fact by the above Michael Turk, who was a 2004 campaign director for the Bush campaign, the template was copied and spread across twitter, to amusing effect. They were interesting, varied, and popular enough for Sunil Garg and I to throw together a quick single serving site: Little Known Facts about Sarah Palin.
All it does is poll Twitter every so often for tweets that match the pattern, and when you visit the site you get a random specimen to read and hopefully enjoy. Currently, there are already 3200 items in the database.
More on this as the site spreads, hopefully.
