Tweet—Day 25 of a Town Girl Touched by the Farming Life
A common urban misconception about rural life is that people in the country are "behind the times," especially when it comes to technology. Those people living in homes with no yards have no idea how wrong they are. In fact, yesterday while at my parents' home, a turkey hunting show was on.
(Just in case this sounds strange to you, numerous outdoorsmen shows exist, and a large number of those feature hunting specific types of animals. Yes, this particular show is 30 minutes of watching men hunt turkeys—and the show has enough of a following to justify its existence.)
Anyway, while these huntsmen were describing their strategy, a suggestion to follow them on Twitter—with their official Twitter account reference—popped up in the corner of the screen. Apparently, during the lull of waiting for these elusive birds, these men are tweeting their progress. Take that, doubtful city folk!
