Rick Perry Confuses Twitter App for Notes App Leading to Confusion and Revelations
Austin, TX - GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry recently confused the Twitter  application on his smart phone with the notes application effectively  notifying millions of people of what was on his mind. The kerfuffle began when Perry tweeted “Ask Wolf Blitzer for that  bean  salad recipe.” Followers responded with a mix of support and confusion  but unfortunately Perry did not know how to check his @ replies. Wolf Blitzer saw the nominees tweet and graciously sent him a link to his recipe blog but the message also went unnoticed. Perry  continued tweeting a mix of laundry list items and literally anything that was on his mind. Shortly after the first tweet Perry sent a message, obviously a reminder  note for himself, saying ” Tivo ‘Wings’ marathon on USA at 9.”  Followers responded enthusiastically with their favorite “Wings” moments  and characters, with Roy Biggens topping the list. Several notes continued such as “Mexicans = no,” “pick up Just For Men  #43,” “Dept of Energy, Dept of Energy, Dept of Energy,” and one note  which simply, cryptically read “Twin unicycle.” Perry aides realized the error and notified the Governor of his mistake  within the hour. Unfortunately not before one final tweet was sent which  read “Nader/Perry? Call Nader. If Nader’s dead ask Bachman.”
