As a fellow Oklahoman, and an alumna to Oklahoma State University, where energy tycoon Pickens also claims his alma mater and much of his legacy through record-breaking financial donations, I love every last bit about the dynamics of what happened today.
Even though we all know T. Boone isn’t monitoring his Twitter account himself, I love the authenticity in the tweet; having met Pickens a few times, I have no doubt this literally would have been his rebuttal. (Now, whether or not he knows who Drake is is another thing).
Gizmodo couldn’t have summed it up more perfectly:
“There has never before been a point in history when a young black guy rich off of Canadian soap operas and luxury super-rap could exchange words with a quasi-eccentric super-rich octogenarian who loves wind power. Now they can—in public. And that, simply, is awesome.”
And gaining another 5,000 followers in a less than a day isn’t too shabby.
Get ’em, Boone!
PS: Boone was born in the same teeny, tiny town as my grandfather, Holdenville — population of a whopping 5,588!
