Earlier this week, Twitter was attacked by a strange hashtag called #OklahomaFolllowTrain. According to this website, the phrase was tweeted about 70,000 times on Sunday and Monday. That number will continue to climb as the hashtag was still trending worldwide as of this morning. If none of that makes any sense, here's an unrelated and random WTF tweet from Channel 5 to keep you entertained:

The purpose and origin of the #OklahomaFolllowTrain is about as clear as a Jenni Carlson column. More than likely, it was spawned by bored Oklahoma teenagers, college students and /or Abigail Ogle as a way to get new Twitter followers without spending any cash. It could also have been created by Oklahoma State School Superintendent Janet Barresi. That would explain the three Ls in "Folllow."

Since we're allegedly the best "person" to follow on social media in Oklahoma City, I decided to get to the "botttom" of this train (heh). So far, I've failed miserably. I have no clue what it is or why it's trending. This is probably because I'm a grown up. After going through awful tweet after awful tweet, this was the only interesting thing I could find:
