BREAKING! Ana Marie Cox Addresses Her Shocking Decline in Twitter Followers!

MUST LOVE TEAAna Marie Cox has a "shrinking audience," notes Fishbowl DC in one of those late Friday breaking news items. They mean her Twitter. As of today, "she has 1,449,248 followers." That's down from 1.47 million Twitter followers! (Here, give her a pity follow, and, by the way, I guess DC bloggers didn't get the memo about how Twitter actually works?)

So Ms. Cox was asked about the rapid and harrowing decline in her popularity and had this to say.

"Losing 1.3% of my Twitter followers is the kind of tragedy I would write a mocking Tweet about had I not come to realize that covering the minutiae of the lives and careers of the 'famous-for-DC' is exactly sort of bottom-of-the-bellybutton scraping that has caused so many Americans outside the Beltway to look upon our insular culture as something repellent, pitiable and possibly untenable," Ms. Cox wrote in a statement provided to The Awl. "By the way, is Fishtank hiring?"

Me and my 961 followers strong mourn that wretched decline.

We don't get any memos down here. There's a serious lack of memos.

I had to drop her because she was out-twittering Kevin Smith, which is mighty hard to do.

AMC for the win. I met her briefly earlier this year and she was completely down-to-earth.

mmmm, bellybutton scrapings…

Ana Marie Cox has more followers than Cleveland has people. Haha. Suck it, Cleveland.

That's DËTHÇÄT to you.

A click-through to the post is strongly encouraged if only for the genius of finding a way to unfavorably compare AMC with George W. Bush.

wasn't she like a big thing in what, 2003 or something?

I'm not surprised Rove's numbers are going up. His acolytes have just discovered Twitter. (and I was just going to link Anil's piece because it is great, but you already got to it. guess I should click everything)

I'm now only 1,449,181 followers behind! THE TIDE IS TURNING.

How did they even notice such a small change? I don't even get out of bed for fewer than 20,000 Twitter followers. #FNO
