TMB salutes bravery of Mr Tom Walshe

The Tripe Marketing Board yesterday reached a new high water mark in the social media when it attracted its 7000th follower on Twitter.

The achievement is all the more remarkable as the TMB has never bought a single follower - although it has previously admitted offering bribes.

Mr Tom Walshe
Speaking at a meeting of the Westhaughton Women's League earlier today, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "At around 5.35pm on Sunday evening, Mr Tom Walshe from Norfolk became the 7000th person to 'follow' @TripeUK on Twitter.  When we first embarked on what we like to call our 'Twitter journey' in 2007, we little thought we could attract so many supporters.  We know that many people find it embarrassing to be publicly associated with tripe, so I'd like to extend my personal thanks to Mr Walshe for taking what we know is a brave step".

Sir Norman said that the TMB was "on course" to meet its target of 10,000 followers by 2020.  "We know there are many more tripe lovers out there in the social media.  It's only a matter of time before they follow us," he said.
