The National Cowboy Museum Put Their Head Of Security In Charge Of Twitter Account
Whatever job or industry you might be in, chances are you’ve experienced performing a duty outside your job description. Depending on the nature of the duty, the experience can either be exhausting or exciting. Luckily, it is the latter for Tim Send, head of security at the National Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma. Apparently, the museum has been generating quite a buzz online for putting Send in charge of their social media accounts.
Contrary to popular belief, being a social media manager is not an easy job. It requires some serious skills too: Excellent copywriting skills, strategic content planning and execution and effective community engagement, among many others. But more importantly, it requires a profound understanding and extensive knowledge of various social media platforms. Above all, you must also be able to represent the company’s ideals in a good light.
The National Cowboy Museum has recently gone viral for putting their head of security in charge of their social media accounts
Hello, my name is Tim and I am the head of security for The Cowboy. I have been asked to take on the additional duty of social media management while the museum is closed. I’m new to this but excited. My team will also continue to protect and monitor the museum. Thanks, Tim Send pic.twitter.com/bPiXD9DoAd
This is the hat and eyepatch the Duke wore in the movie True Grit. They are part of our Exhibition about the 2 True Grit. Lots of interesting props and clothes. I’m told I can’t try it on. Hashtag John Wayne. Lucas, my grandson, told me to use hashtags. Thanks, Tim pic.twitter.com/yNO3RP4uA4
Evidently, the online community is loving him for his hilariously wholesome tweets. From posting educational trivia to witty puns, Send is literally sending some virtual positivity amidst the ongoing crisis.
So far, Send’s first week at the National Cowboy Museum has been an awesome experience
We have a very cool photography exhibition right now called Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing that runs through May 20, 2020. Her photographs are very moving. That is a photo of her. She looks like someone I’d want to have a beer with. Thanks, Tim pic.twitter.com/Y63sU1iDC0
This is one of her photos of people lined up at a social security office in San Francisco trying to get unemployment benefits in 1937. It was a tough time then. And it looks like it’s going to be a tough time now. But we get through these times together, don’t we? Thanks, Tim pic.twitter.com/UUXUlCiS2H
What’s even more hilarious is that he always signs his tweets with “Thanks, Tim”—as if it were an email! Well, that pretty much reminds us of Captain Raymond Holt from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Somehow, his tweets prove that he still has much to learn about the inner workings of the internet.
Hello, Lucas and Keira. There’s a snake in my boot!
Here are Woody and his friends from Toy Story. They’re part of our Find Your Western exhibition exploring the West’s role in popular culture. Watched this movie with the grandkids. Tried to catch them moving, Lucas and Keira. Thanks, Tim pic.twitter.com/TEbLWEm8Yh
Thanks for all the tips, Friends. Realize I have been doing the hashtags wrong. I need to use that pound sign from the phone. I’m learning! Here’s his costume from True Grit from 1969 courtesy of John Wayne Enterprises. #HashtagJohnWayne Thanks, Tim pic.twitter.com/AZu7EidGu2
The museum currently boasts a 4.7-star rating with 2,646 reviews on Google. So, apparently, it has already held a remarkable reputation, even before Send served as their interim social media manager. Housing over 28,000 artworks and artifacts, the museum has long been famous for upholding the city’s rich Wild Western history.
“With the exception of Thunder, Oklahoma’s known for, above all else, its rich Wild Western history. This incredible history is preserved for all to see in OKC’s National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.”—Great Oklahoma City Chamber
Here’s a sculpture by Frederic Remington called The Bronco Buster cast in 1918. What do you guys think of it? Seth in marketing told me that asking questions on the social media is good for “engagement.” Let’s get engaged! LOL! Thanks, Tim I’m very happily married to Tina though pic.twitter.com/lMTxUpfTeJ
Someone suggested I post a Tick Tock. It’s from our Warhol and The West Exhibition.

There’s no doubt that he’s the perfect man for the job!
Tim, I’m not ashamed to tell you – you’re our only hope. You’re the thing keeping us going. It’s tough out here. May your resolve be strong; your hat.. mighty. It takes a special man to fill those boots, and we believe in you.
Hi Tim! I’m an OK History teacher in SW OK. I think part of my distance learning for HS students will be to follow what you are doing in our awesome museum and see what they can learn! Thanks for being here!
Unfortunately, the National Cowboy Museum is currently closed to the public, following Mayor David Holt’s declaration of a state of emergency. Luckily, we have Send’s tweets to entertain us for the time being. Hopefully, you can all pay the museum a visit once the pandemic’s over. Who knows, you might even meet Send in the flesh!
