So when Geoff offered to send me the stats he had collected about their @lifeinstitute Twitter account, I said why yes please kind sir. I'm not one to turn down an opportunity to snark on one of Ireland's infinitely annoying extremist anti-choice groups, especially when they're claiming to represent the views of the majority of people in this country and have taken to harassing TDs by bombarding them with phonecalls.
Here's what I learned about their Twitter fanbase.
Well now, would you look at that? It would appear that Irish accounts aren't all that interested in what the Life Institute have to say, and they themselves aren't particularly pushed about what Irish people have to say, either.
Look what happens when you take the descriptions of their followers and turn them into a Wordle.

My. What a diverse and eclectic mix of people with such varying interests.
I'd also like to show you a few of the descriptions themselves:
Born in the USA! The best things in life: Adonai, family, friends, milk chocolate, jet planes and a 9mm semi automatic.
Constitution lovin, NRA, Conservative, sarcastic, Hillbilly, Redneck, Oath Keeper, Military loving, father, grandfather, dirty ol' man.
#Christian #PROLIFE #ISRAEL #NRA #Glock #Texas #USMC 85-95. #Indiana #IARNG 97-01. #Texan by birth #Marine by choice. #infidel. Follow or RT ≠ Endorsement
Wow. I don't even have to do anything to make fun of them. Pro-life AND pro-gun.
And just because it's hilarious, here's a recent tweet from one of the accounts followed by the Life Institute:
Peacefully grant the State of North Carolina to withdraw from the United States and create its own NEW government http://t.co/fd81ismG
