Texas Supreme Court justice is the new Tweeter laureate

“Hate the game, don’t hate the player,” Willett said when his campaigning attracted notice in 2012, and the game hasn’t changed since. “My name ID hovers between slim and none,” he said by email.

But Willett said his view of Twitter has evolved “beyond its political benefit.”

“It’s a great way to stay abreast of warp-speed happenings in the world and enjoy the musings of smart, fascinating people,” said Willett. He repeated a line that he has used often enough that it was referenced in the Texas House resolution honoring him: “I’m probably the most prolific judicial tweeter in America, which is like being the tallest Munchkin in Oz.”
